Martha Snell Nicholson

Margaret Snell Nicholson was a woman who suffered from four incurable diseases. She struggled with pain more than thirty-five years, an invalid, bound to her bed.  Her spirit was so transcendently triumphant through those many weary years, that she wrote some of the finest Christian poetry which has ever been written.

    I am hoping to find what may be the transcript from a radio program. A poem by Martha Snell Nicholson was read. I think it was titled The Old Brown Coat and was written after her husband passed away. It had to have been written well before 1980, because that is when my father died. I had a copy which I sent to my step-mother. I have many times since given copies to widows. It has proved to be a source of comfort to them. It speaks of her beloved husband, his death and how she gave away all of his effects, but could not bear to part with his old brown coat. I cannot find my copy and having no luck locating it online. Any help locating this poem would be appreciated.

      The name of the poem is Surcease. I don’t know the rules of copying it, but I found it on a website, featuring letters to her Church, after the death of Howard Wren Nicholson, her husband. you can email me
