Letter from Theodore Parker to Convers Francis, 1840 March 10
Theodore Parker writes to Convers Francis in regards to Miss Hudson. He writes that she will "become a very good school mistress but you must not expect to find her a companion to yourself. She is an excellent girl of no "outrageous abilities' nor superhuman genius." He thinks De Welle's characterization of the Pentateuch as the Hebrew National Epos is best. He asks his opinion on the "Genesis of Mysticism." He gives his recommendation of Miss Hudson on the last page.
