"The Willing Hearts." Life and Light for Heathen Women [mission magazine] Dec. 1872: 382-83. AAH (art)
Note: "The Willing Hearts," a short paragraph on the newly-formed society, in Life and Light for Heathen Women June 1872: 286, is unsigned but probably also Walker's work.

Charting Walker's publications after 1872 becomes complicated because another E. A. Walker, in England, also began publishing about this time. A number of the British publications attributed to Mrs. Edward Ashley Walker in WorldCat and similar databases appear to have that attribution because they were either published as by "E. A. Walker" or under the initials "E. A. W." None of those have been included in this list, because they have not been seen and the connection with Katherine Kent Child Walker seems tenuous at best.

Similarly, although the periodical Christian Banner is an American publication, contributions by E. A. Walker are not listed here. Most are written by a British correspondent ("Religious News From England") and one poem is signed "Miss E. A. Walker, London".
