About Elizabeth Bowes
"Jan. 23rd, 1833.-This morning our dear Elizabeth died, after an illness of sixteen days, caused by water in the head. She was the most intelligent and most amiable child I ever saw. Sometimes I have heard her crying in another room, and I have sat still in my study, calling her to come. She always came, confessed her fault, and promised amendment, although only about two years old. I never recollect correcting her in any other way than by verbal reproof" - Autobiography, page 115.
