Female Student Honors a Deceased Sister and Fellow Classmate

"The Vale of Rest"

A year after the death of Emma V. Harry's sister, Angella Harry, she writes a poem about her sister in the Microcosm. Titled "The Vale of Rest", Emma describes the place "where our fair Angella sleeps" as well as her speculations on what heaven must be like. This is also the second poem Emma has printed in the 1894 Microcosm.
