Leland, E. H. In The Sunny Side, N.Y., 1875, several hymns are given as by Mrs. E. H. Leland, including:—
1. Cheerfully, cheerfully let us all live. Life to be joyful.
2. How many little children Within. City Mission.
3. O, the Father's hands are helping. Work for God.
4. The days are gliding swiftly by. Summer.
No. 1 is given in The S. School Hymnary, 1905, as "M. G. Leland, area 1890," in error. Mrs. Leland's hymns were written c. 1869, before her marriage, for use in the Sunday School of the Unitarian Church at Milwaukee.
