ter acquainted with their characters. Between the two sisters there is a contrast, but it is a contrast which exists between two excellent characters. It is not fair to depreciate either. Each had her womanly foibles, and I call them "womanly" not in disparagement but in miti-gation. Speaking generally, the faults of men are the faults of pride, and the faults of women are the faults of vanity. Vanity is weak, but Pride is wicked. In an honest and critical study of character we need not conceal faults ; they are not vices. They are superficial, not radical. We can never bring humanity to be saintly until we can all agree to be willing to allow that saints, male and female, are human. And so, in speakmg of these two holy women and treat-ing them as human beings I must not be sus-pected of any lack of reverence for the holiness of their character, seeing that our dear Lord and Saviour made them to be of the number of His intimate friends.
