Miss Bates was educated in the public schools of that City, began to write poetry early in life, contributing to "Our Young Folks" and other magazines, and has published a volume of her collected verses, entitled "Risk, and other Poems" (Boston, 1879). She has edited the "Longfellow Birthday-Book" and "The Seven Voices of Sympathy" (1881), compilations of Longfellow's prose and poetry, and the " Cambridge Book of Poetry and Song" (1882), a volume of poetical selections from English and American authors.
