Title

Peace that Passeth Understanding

Description

An article written by Estelle B. Cuffe in late 1918, following the war. She writes about "Peace on the Battlefield", "Our Boys Reprieved" and "The Men Who Shirked". Estelle concludes her article with the following "But, after all, the job is done and well done. Hats off to those 'heroes and gentlemen'. They have had a rought[sic], hard time; they have hated and loathed it all, but with a grim and stubborn courage, resultant from the knowledge of the righteousness of their cause, they fought on, and they have made the glorious victory ours. To those who shall come home comes the sense of duty done, and the peace of an unaccusing conscience. To our fallen heroes - theirs is the 'peace of God which passeth all understanding.'" Estelle's brother was one of the heroes who was called to duty and died during his time in service. This article was one of many Estelle wrote for the Peterborough Review.
