Helen Rowland (1875-1850)was called “America’s Bernard Shaw.” Unfortunately, not an awful lot is known about her, and I’ve turned up exactly two pictures (one only last night—to feature in a future post).
It’s been a while since I’ve posted any of her wit and wisdom.* This one, on love, is rather sweet, for her.
*Blog posts here, here, and here.
