I have thought of a brilliant scheme: or rather it was suggested to me by the supper-table conversation this evening. I think that I will study either Greek, German or French with Mother this summer. I will try Greek, I guess; and I shall probably gain at least knowledge of the letters! [6/17/1893]

The Education of Anna Richards

Anna Matlack Richards (Anna Brewster’s mother) was a fine teacher, judging by Anna’s brothers’ careers: two attended Harvard, became professors, and one won the Nobel Prize for Chemistry. Anna read widely -- in her letters she mentions and discusses the ideas of Plato, Socrates, Spinoza, Hegel, Swinburne, Whittier, Royce, Milton, Howells, James and Emerson, among others, and she took the lessons of the romantics like Emerson to heart, believing that the natural world around her was imbued with moral values and that she must strive to express them in her art.
