In Favor with God and Man
Guidance for the Christian Home When Children are Nine to Eleven, by Kathryn Blackburn Peck, published by the Warner Press, paperback, 154 pages, some pen markings, good condition.

This is a book appears to be from the Church of God, Anderson. Of interest to those studying family religion, raising children, Holiness, Nazarene, Wesleyan Arminian, etc.

That's a rather precise target age range. I wonder what happened in that household?

Mary Cary Blackburn
Toward The Higlands
A 133 page hardcover book of poems titled Toward The Highlands, by Mary Cary Blackburn, dated 1912. The forward says "Introducing to the public Mary Cary Blackburn, the author of this volume, we take pleasure in saying that she is a direct descendant from the same parent stock as the world-known poet sisters, Alice and Phoebe Cary. Her productions are true to life, strikingly original and close to nature's heart. She has mingled with God's creatures under widely varied conditions, and is equally at home in the crowded city and among the scattered settlers' shacks on the plains of Saskatchewan. A responsive chord will be touched in the heart of every reader, whether gay of nature and pleasure-loving or reserved and calm. Rich and poor, proud and lowly, will find that this little volume bears a personal message." There are approximately 150 poems in this book which is in good condition with about five pages having a wrinkle or very small tear on the end, a couple cover stains, a tight binding and a name written in pencil inside the front cover.
