Brief Memoir of Maria Fox

Maria Fox


Excerpt from Brief Memoir of Maria Fox: Late of Tottenham

The following memoir of Maria Fox is an abridgment of the one edited by her husband and published in 1846. It consists almost wholly of selections from her letters and extracts from her Diary: -

"The path of the just is as a shining light, which shining more and more unto the perfect day."

In following the footsteps of Maria Fox, the reader can scarcely fail to be impressed with the remarkable completeness of her character, in which is presented a beautiful combination of womanly delicacy, intellectual culture, and earnest piety. Her writings abound with thoughts and feelings which so strikingly illustrate, not only her daily life, but the motive which prompted the scrupulous fulfilment of duty, that it has been a task of no small difficulty to decide what to omit in her husband's carefully compiled volume; yet it was believed that her example, exhibiting so strongly the union of self-denial and submission to the divine will with the culture of the affections and the intellect and the rich enjoyment of the beautiful in nature, might be profitably placed within the reach of all.
