I came across this very sweet letter from Anna Alcott Pratt to some young admirers of Louisa after she had written Little Women. It’s very revealing as to how she felt about her sisters, and herself. To me she seems hard on herself but most people don’t think they are as good as their family and friends think they are.
Oftentimes I wish Anna hadn’t dropped out of sight after she married. She was a very interesting person in her own right.
