Commendations from Eminent Men & Women
What A Young Woman Ought to Know
COMMENDED BY REV. F.B. MEYER The Eminent English Preacher and Author
REV. F.B. MEYER, B.A.
Minister of Christ Church, Westminster, London, Author of "Israel, A Prince with God," "Elijah; Tried by Fire," "The Bells of Is," etc., etc.
"The questions which are dealt with in the 'Self and Sex Series' of books are always being asked, and if the answer is not forthcoming from pure and wise lips it will be obtained through vicious and empirical channels. I therefore greatly commend this series of books, which are written lucidly and purely, and will afford the necessary information without pandering to unholy and sensual passion. I should like to see a wide and judicious distribution of this literature among Christian circles."
COMMENDED BY CHARLES M. SHELDON The Eminent American Preacher and Author
CHARLES M. SHELDON, D.D.
Pastor of Central Congregational Church, Topeka, Kansas; author of "In His Steps," "The Crucifixion of Philip Strong," "Lend a Hand," "Born to Serve."
"It is a pleasure to call attention to the books of the 'Self and Sex Series' which have been prepared with great wisdom for the express purpose of teaching the truth concerning the subjects which are painfully neglected."
COMMENDED BY MRS. M.W. SEWALL The Eminent American Educator
MRS. MAY WRIGHT SEWALL
Principal of the Girls' Classical School; former President of the International Council of Women; and Nominee of the International Congress of Women.
"I am profoundly grateful that a subject of such information to young women should be treated in a manner at once so noble and so delicate that any pure-minded teacher or mother may read or discuss its pages with young girls without the slightest chance of wounding the most delicate sensibilities, or by being misunderstood."
COMMENDED BY MRS. M.L. DICKINSON The Eminent American Christian Worker
MRS. MARY LOWE DICKINSON
Former President of the National Council of Women; General Secretary of the Order of The King's Daughters; Emeritus Professor of Literature Denver University; Editor of "The Silver Cross;" Author of "The Temptation of Katharine Gray," "One Little Life," etc., etc.
"Any young woman, knowing all that this volume teaches, has an essential foundation for whatever other knowledge she may acquire."
COMMENDED BY MRS. M.B. CARSE The Eminent American Christian Worker
MRS. MATILDA B. CARSE
Founder of the Woman's Temple, Chicago.
"As a mother, I can truly say that my heart goes out to you in endorsement of
this book. It is pure and instructive on the delicate subjects that mean so much to our daughters, to their future as home-keepers, wives and mothers, and to the future generations. It can but create a more reverent ideal of life in every girl who reads it, and I wish every daughter in the land could reap of its benefit."
COMMENDED BY MRS. E.C. STANTON The Eminent American Lecturer and Author
MRS. ELIZABETH CADY STANTON
Noted Woman Suffragist, Lecturer and Author.
"Your books I consider a valuable addition to the literature of the day on social ethics. The many facts you state are not only important for a knowledge of social science, but involve good health and morals."
COMMENDED BY MR. C.N. CRITTENTON The Eminent American Philanthropist
CHARLES N. CRITTENTON
Founder of the National Florence Crittenton Mission
"The frequent excuse which parents give for not enlightening their children on these most important points is that they have never known how to do so. This excuse can no longer be considered valid.
"Dr. Wood-Allen has a remarkable gift in the facility and refinement with which she is able to approach the most delicate subject without arousing a single morbid and sensitive impulse."
COMMENDED BY MRS. H. CAMPBELL The Eminent American Author and Educator
MRS. HELEN CAMPBELL
Dean of the Department of Household Economics in the Kansas State Agricultural College.
Author of "Prisoners of Poverty," "Wage Earners," etc., etc.
"I cannot speak too warmly of your invaluable series. There is hardly a woman in America so thoroughly qualified by education, long experience, deep sympathies, and, most excellent of all gifts, as deep common sense, as Dr. Mary Wood-Allen, to meet the growing need, or rather the growing sense of need. Mothers and fathers alike will be helped and enlightened by these simple, clear-phrased, wholesome books, and they deserve all the success already their own."
COMMENDED BY L.M.N. STEVENS The Eminent Temperance Worker
MRS. LILLIAN M.N. STEVENS
President of National Woman's Christian Temperance Union.
"I consider the book 'What a Young Wife Ought to Know' a wise and safe teacher. It is a careful and delicate presenta tion of vital truths which have to do with the happiness and welfare of home life."
COMMENDED BY EMINENT AMERICAN AUTHORS AND EDITORS
MARGARET WARNER MORLEY
Author of "The Song of Life," "Life and Love," "The Bee People," etc.
"There is an awful need for the book, and it does what it has undertaken to do better than anything of the kind I have ever read. You may rely upon me to make it known wherever I can."
ELISABETH ROBINSON SCOVIL
Superintendent of the Newport Hospital, and Associate Editor of the Ladies' Home Journal; Author of "The Care of Children," etc.
"'What a Young Woman Ought to Know' is characterized by purity of tone and delicacy of treatment.
"It is one which a mother can place with confidence in the hands of her daughter. Reverent knowledge is the surest safeguard of innocence, and it is every mother's duty to see that the young girl committed to her charge is duly forearmed by being forewarned of the dangers that lie around her."
