From her earliest years she showed a decided literary bent. Her studies were interrupted by a severe illness lasting for years. A victim to insomnia, she always kept paper and pencil within reach in order to jot down the fancies that thronged upon her. Encouraged by the Rev. J. C. Webster, her pastor, also one of the directors of the academy which Miss Aldrich attended, some of her compositions were offered to a magazine, and were accepted. For many years Miss Aldrich contributed both prose and poetry to a number of papers and magazines. since 1879 she has made her home in the Roxbury District of Boston.
