A VIGOROUS OLD AGE
Spokane, Wash., July 23, 1907.
My dear Mrs. Eddy:—At this time, when there is so much talk of limitation of one's years, I feel impelled to write you of an experience which I have just enjoyed, believing you will appreciate the motive and will forgive the intrusion. Last week I met and talked with a lady who is one hundred and twenty years old—Mrs. Mary Ramsey Lemons Wood, of Hillsboro, Oregon, who was born at Knoxville, Tenn., May 20, 1787. She crossed the plains on horseback when she was sixty-six. Her oldest child, if he had lived, would be ninety-nine. She lives with her baby daughter, who is seventy-seven. Her mother lived to the age of one hundred and ten, and walked five miles the day before she died, knitting all the way, as was her custom. Mrs. Wood has recently heard from a lady in Texas who is one hundred and twenty-six years old. Mrs. Wood joined the Methodist Church when she was twelve years old. On July 4, 1907, she was crowned "Queen of Oregon," a beautiful tribute to age. And strange to relate, as yet her "next friends" have not seen fit to examine into her sanity or have a guardian appointed.
Yours very truly,
John R. Norris.
