I have a photo album from Aunt Janet with many pictures from this Cincinnati time period. Martha remained in Cincinnati until her death in 1919.17

Gold and Frankincense and Myrrh: Stories by Louise Richardson Rorke
The latest title from Friends United Press, Gold and Frankincense and Myrrh: Stories by Louise Richardson Rorke, pays tribute to the life and work of a gifted Canadian writer, Louise Richardson Rorke (1878-1949). A teacher and active Quaker throughout her life, Louise was editor of The Canadian Friend from 1936 until shortly before her death and a longtime editor of Canadian Teacher.

Kyle Jolliffe, editor of the collection, says that "recovering the lost stories of Louise Rorke and writing about her life has been a wonderful treasure hunt and a fitting way to honor an extraordinary storyteller."

Although the title story in this collection of writings is a Christmas story, this is not a Christmas book. Selections span Louise Rorke's writing career--beginning with a journal entry at age 11 foreshadowing her talent. In her stories, Louise Rorke takes us to the Canadian frontier and into the hearts of the people who tamed it. She invites us into the heart of a soldier on the front in World War I, or to share the love of a young boy for his dog. In all, Louise Rorke's abiding faith in God and in people permeates her work.

Louise Richardson Rorke's literary work appeared in the Canadian Magazine, Courier, Maclean's, Canada Monthly, The Home Journal, and The Canadian Countryman. Her greatest success was a children's adventure story, Lefty: A Story of a Boy and a Dog (Thomas Nelson and Sons, 1931).

In his response to this collection of stories, Canadian author Michael Bedard writes: "If there is a thread that runs through these piecesÉit is the sympathy one shows for those who suffer that begins to heal the broken world."

Kyle Jolliffe is a member of the Canadian Friends Historical Association. He has published articles in Canadian Quaker History Journal and Nova Scotia Historical Review. His book, Seeking the Blessed Community: A History of Canadian Young Friends, 1875-1996 (1997) is the first history of Canadian Quakerism.8
