Lydia Ann Chadwick, the daughter of John Chadwick and Lydia Whiton Chadwick, was born 4 July 1875 in Boston, Suffolk County, Massachusetts.1

Presumably, as a young girl, Lydia was given The Peace Catechism on Christian Principles as it states in handwriting on the cover, “by her minister.”2

The Peace Catechism on Christian Principles was written in 1816 by Philo Pacificus, the pen name used by Noah Worcester. (1758-1837). Worcester founded the  Massachusetts Peace Society in 1815 and, prior to writing The Peace Catechism had writtenThe Friend of Peace,.3
