Her comment is:
This work is priceless. A biography of each and every one. Their achievements, marriages, children and deaths. In particular are those Harvard men who served and died in the Civil War. The author writes of their sacrifice, in some cases their dying words. (in one case, dying words were, "Mother - my mother").
