During our last fund drive one donor said this: "I love hymns ... If you asked for money, it means you need it! Please keep the work going. And please, accept my widow's mite. God bless you."

She was right. We only ask for money twice a year, and we do so because we need it.

Charlotte Elizabeth was born at Norwich in 1790. Her father, the Rev. Michael Browne, was Rector of S. Giles' parish in that city. She married Captain George Phelan, of the army, but the union proved an unhappy one. Thrown upon her own resources, she contributed to the Dublin Tract Society, and in 1834, became editor of "The Christian Ladies' Magazine." Her husband died in 1837. In 1840, she married Mr. L.H. Tonna, but continued to retain her two Christian names as her literary designation. She died in 1846. Her works are very numerous. --Annotations of the Hymnal, Charles Hutchins, M.A. 1872.… Go to person page >
