"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)
