In 1888, at the age of 58, Elisabeth Dwight Cabot met Ellen Chase, a social worker from England who trained under Octavia Hill. Because of Cabot's own concern for the social welfare of the citizens of Boston, she and Chase maintained a friendship through correspondence that lasted until two months before Cabot's death in 1901.
