Script "Caroline - My Life"
I was born on the 30th of May, 1808 in England. I married Archibald Chisholm, a soldier in British East India company. I became Roman Catholic like my husband.
I dedicated my life to helping female immigrants. My husband supported my work. Governor George Gips gave me a run down building, I then used it to shelter female immigrants and their families. I found employment for them and gave them another chance at life.
I wrote the 1st book to be written and published by a female and spent the rest of my life helping people. I died in England on 25th of March, 1877 at the age of 69".
