Sister Mary Settles. [Portrait] (Printed verso reads: "Shaker Village was communistically owned and was divided into families, each family occupying a house. The families were governed in their spiritual relations by four Elders, two of each sex, while temporal affairs were regulated by four Deacons, two men and two women. All minor offices were filled in like manner. The Shakers were not afraid to put the women into power. Sister Mary C. Settles was the educator of the village, and its last surviving member. She was born October 30, 1836 and died March 29, 1923.")
