Jemima Luke in England - 1841

from My Life and Sacred Songs, page 261:

" In the year 1841 I went to the Normal Infant School in Gray's Inn Road, to obtain some knowledge of the system," wrote the late Mrs. Luke. " Mary Moffatt, afterwards Mrs. Livingstone, was there at the same time, and Sarah Roby, whom Mr. and Mrs. Moffatt had rescued in infancy when buried alive, and had brought up with their own children. Among the marching pieces at Gray's Inn Road was a Greek air, the pathos of which took my fancy, and I searched Watts and Jane Taylor and several Sundayschool hymn-books for words to suit the measure, but in vain.
