|Carrie Adeline Foster writes about her mother, Miss Lissia. "How often in the days gone by, have I heard
my dear busy mother, whose silver hair made a halo about her youthful, smiling face say to one of her
less busy daughters: Read me a love story, dear. She found rest and refreshment in the fountain of
romance..." -Carrie Adeline Foster "Sunny South" Atlanta, GA c. 1895
