"For many years she has scarcely known what physical ease and comfort were. She labored with a body prostrated and suffering; and laid herself down to sleep in pain. No regimen, nor varying seasons, or change of place could give her health; wherever she lived, wherever she went pain and suffering abided her. Ever patient and resigned, and for a great portion of the time confined at home, few knew how much she suffered."
Mandeville, Rev. Sumner "Weepers Instructed: A Sermon, Preached at the funeral of Mr. Abigail Woolsey Welles Ludlow, wife of the Rev. H.G. Ludlow" Poughkeepsie: Platt & Schram, 1849, p. 13. (Sermon preached on 2 Mar. 1849)
