A Snubbed Young Mother Repaid Emily's Pride with Kindness

My sister told me this story recently and it really caught my imagination.  I was thrilled to see it printed up and published in a magazine!  Here's the article by William G. Hartley as published in 1981.  I wish the illustration was there with it.

Here is the link:  Emily's Pride by William G. Hartley

I wish I knew the name of the young mother who showed such grace and kindness to my relative Emily Abbott Bunker.  Perhaps a reader knows who she was.  This unnamed heroine could have given Emily a good tongue-lashing for her snotty comments.  Instead she showed grace and compassion.  She set a good example for all of us!
