1918. The correspondence of Susan Hale, the youngest of eight born into a prominent literary family of Boston. Her father, Nathan Hale, nephew of the revolutionary war hero of the same name, was editor of the Boston Daily Advertiser. Her mother, Sarah Preston Everett, was a sister of the orator, Edward Everett. Her brother, Edward Everett Hale, the writer of the introduction to this volume, was a leading Unitarian minister, a leader in the Social Gospel movement, and author of numerous articles, sermons, pamphlets, and short stories, most prominent of which was The Man Without a Country, written for The Atlantic Monthly to inspire greater patriotism during the Civil War. In her lifetime, Susan was a teacher, an art student, a lecturer and public reader, an amateur actress, an avid traveler, and the manager of the family household in Matunuck, Rhode Island. She traveled extensively in Egypt, the Holy Land, all over Europe, throughout the West Indies, Mexico, and across the American continent.
She was a prolific letter writer and, as one of her admirers wrote, her letters constitute an intimate narrative of the life, activities and thoughts of a cultivated American woman of the highest and best type during an interesting period.
