1. That’s fantastic. What a character! I loved this, ” She liked to be kind, but to be so in a splendid and autocratic manner.” and, who knew Alcott had such illustrious connections? I think the educated class of that day was a small world after all. Thanks for joining in!

      Indeed, it was VERY small, when you consider all the Concord connections (Emerson, Thoreau, Hawthorne), which weren’t family but definitely friends. Also, somehow connected in there through some familial tie (if I’m not mistaken), as well as a professional/philosophical one, was Elizabeth Peabody, the educator. She was the namesake of the Alcott sister sho died.
