Excerpt from Scottish Heroines of the Faith: Being Brief Sketches of Noble Women of the Reformation and Covenant Times

This little book consists of a series of articles which were first contributed to the pages of the Protestant Woman and afterwards appeared in the Free Presbyterian Magazine. The book makes not the slightest pretence to original historical research. The ordinary sources of Reformation and Covenanting history were used to yield material, but more especially Anderson's Ladies of the Covenant. The aim of the writer has been to keep green the memory of a noble band of women who, moved with a heroism born of heaven, chose "rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season, esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures" of Scotland, for they "had respect unto the recompence of the reward." They played their part nobly, and the very fact of being brought into communion with a people who loved their lives not unto the death, is an inspiration not to be lightly esteemed. As one reads about them and realizes in a measure what they suffered for their love and fidelity to the truth as it is in Jesus, the words of Augustine rise before the mind when, confronted by the commanding figure of the Apostle Paul, he says, "Behold here a soldier of the heavenly camp; not the dust which we are."
