An Hour with Miss Streator by Pansy
The introduction from the book says—"This simple sketch [for Sunday-school teachers] is, I think, full of encouragement, and will help us, I am sure, to go forth with more earnestness and faith, 'bearing precious seed,' and to 'wait,' if need be, 'in patience,' ''till the fair harvest come.'" One class led by Miss Streator is recorded for study. This Sunday-school class had many interruptions, distractions and problems. The children's lives were followed up years later and much more had happened than was observed.
