‘From natural preference she chose for her devotions those parts of the Bible which I selected with deliberate intention. She wondered to find so much spiritual kinship with me, when I built on such a different foundation. When I suggested that the 109th Psalm, which she read as the allotted portion in ""Fletcher’s Family Devotions"", was not fit to be read in a Christian household, she said meekly – “You are quite right, I shall mark it, and never read it again…"".Of the twelve months I spent in the old country, I spent six with the dear old aunts….I introduced her [Margaret] to new books, and especially new poets; she had never heard of Browning and Jean Ingelow….A short visit from Mrs Graham to me at Thornton Loch opened up to Aunt Mary some of my treasures of memory. She asked me to recite “Bertha in the Lane”, Hood’s “Tale of a Trumpet”,""Locksley Hall"", ""The Pied Piper"", and Jean Ingelow’s “Songs of Seven”.’
