Warner, Anna Bartlett, daughter of Henry
W. Warner and sister of Susan Warner
(1819-85), the authoress, was born in 1820
at Martlaer, West Point, New York. She
is the author of some fifteen or twenty volumes.
She edited Hymns of the Church
Militant, 1858. Her first volume, Say and
Seal, 1859, prepared in association with
her sister, contained one of the most popular
hymns for young people ever written in America, beginning:
Jesus loves me, this I know,
For the Bible tells me so.
In 1869 she published Wayfaring Hymns,
Original and Translated. The titles of her
successive volumes (most of which have
been published under the pen name of
"Amy Lothrop") may be found in any biography
of American authors. She resides
at Martlaer's Rock, West Point, N. Y.
