Impressions of Louisa May Alcott by her nephew, John Pratt Alcott
My thanks to Louisa May Alcott’s Orchard House for alerting us to this article, found in Good Housekeeping Magazine, January 1913. And thanks to Jodi Pollack Benaroch for providing the link. I have created a PDF of the article which you can download here:
As you can see, the article is written by Louisa May Alcott’s nephew, John Pratt Alcott, son of Anna and John Bridge Pratt. Louisa legally adopted him so that she could pass down her copyrights to the family. This article provides a rare and intimate glimpse of Louisa’s life and the lives of her family members.
