Eliza Paul Kirkbride Gurney was a Quaker minister who, when her husband Joseph John Gurney died in 1847, continued the labours of a traveling minister. She corresponded with Abraham Lincoln, who was found to have a two year old letter from Eliza, carefully “treasured up” by him in his breast pocket when assassinated. - Summary by David Lawrence
