Review of The Woman Who Toils

Much attention has been attracted to a recent book, "The Woman Who Toils," by a newspaper comment upon a letter addressed to one of the authors by President Roosevelt. The point he emphasizes is an important one, but does not by any means cover the whole problem of the book. Mrs. Van Vorst has accomplished a difficult and valuable task. Her spirit as she works besides the woman who toils is perfect. Her lack of self-consciousness, her absorption in her study of conditions, her exceptionally clear intellect, and her beautiful and discriminating sympathy make up a very unusual equipment.

A brief review of Bessie and Marie Van Vorst's "The Woman Who Toils" in weekly newspaper the Christian Advocate. The review mentions a letter the sisters received from President Roosevelt himself.
