Eliza Francis Andrews

Miss Eliza Francis Andrews was born in 1847, and her first work was "A Family Secret, descriptive of southern life". "A Mere Adventurer" appeared in 1879, and in this Miss Andrews makes a plea for a wider field of usefulness for woman. "The Letters of Elzey Hay" were written mostly from Florida to the "Augusta Chronicle."

Miss Andrews' home is Washington, Wilkes County, Georgia, and she was educated at the LaGrange Female College. She is now a teacher at Wesleyan Female college at Macon—the "mother of all female colleges." She is never idle, and is a popular contributor to current literature in Georgia.
