Tiffany/Duncan comment: In terms of dates, this might be the "Praise" window (WINDOW:3.128.1.2) but the theme does not really match and this is not a memorial window [TIFF1910, DUNC1980, DEDUCED]
Comment: The inscription has the same (unusual) script as the "Pilgrims" window (WINDOW:3.128.1.1) and both windows date to 1890, so likely Eloise Lawrence Breese (the sister of William, not the daughter) donated both windows [DEDUCED]
