Description
This landmark volume makes widely available for the first time the correspondence of the Quaker activist Lucretia Coffin Mott. Scrupulously reproduced and annotated, these letters illustrate the length and breadth of her public life as a leading reformer while providing an intimate glimpse of her family life.Dedicated to reform of almost every kind -- temperance, peace, equal rights, woman suffrage, nonresistance, and the abolition of slavery -- Mott viewed woman's rights as only one element of a broad-based reform agenda for American society. A founder and leader of many antislavery organizations, she housed fugitive slaves, maintained lifelong friendships with such African-American colleagues as Harriet Tubman and Sojourner Truth, and agitated to bring her fellow Quakers into consensus on taking a stand against slavery. She also helped to organize the Seneca Falls Woman's Rights Convention, whose resolutions called for equal treatment of women in all arenas.An active public life, however,is only half the story of this energetic woman. Mott and her husband of fifty-six years, James, raised five children to adult-hood, and her letters to other reformers and fellow Quakers are mixed in with the informal "hurried scraps" she wrote to and about her family.An invaluable resource on an extraordinary woman, these selected letters reveal the incisive mind, clear sense of mission, and level-headed personality that made Lucretia Coffin Mott a natural leader and a major force in nineteenth-century American life.
