The women themselves were painfully aware when the best they could provide did not meet their own standards. Mary Wilson Argue had come from Ireland to Canada in 1821. ”44 Women felt greater sorrow when they could not offer even the simplest of meals. Susannah Farley Waldron was the wife of a Methodist minister who served on various difficult mission fields within Canada, and she was often left alone in their isolated home, far from post office and from any white neighbours. One day when her husband was away obtaining supplies, a missionary stopped at her home, and she had nothing to feed him.

Ten years later, after his return to Britain, he published An Account of the Work of God in Newfoundland, North America. 3 The narrative tradition continued because the frontier, of course, was not static. As missionaries in one area became the ministers of self-supporting congregations, others were sent forth to form circuits where settlers were just beginning to make their homes. Thus, to the end of the nineteenth century and even beyond, the common narrative of Methodist history was the tale of the heroic preacher who sowed the seed of the gospel on sometimes fertile, sometimes barren or rocky ground.
