A propos de cet article

Language: English . Brand New Book. Married three times, Salmon P. Chase lost four children in infancy. Two daughters survived to adulthood and were their father s companions during his service as a U.S. senator from Ohio, governor of Ohio, Abraham Lincoln s secretary of the Treasury, and Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. Kate, his older daughter, acted as an unofficial political advisor to her father and was a prominent Washington, D.C., hostess, while Nettie eschewed a life in the public eye, becoming a wife, mother, and creator of children s books.Often separated from his family due to the demands of his career as a lawyer and antislavery politician, Chase maintained his relationship with his daughters by the frequent exchange of letters. Chase s letters show an ambitious father trying to school his daughters from afar, admonishing them to study and encouraging them to develop self-discipline and personal responsibility. The letters in this volume - from Chase to his daughters, from his daughters to him and to each other - span from when Kate was a young child and Nettie not yet born to their father s death in 1873.This collection of correspondence, many letters previously unpublished, stresses familial relationships, the daughters education, and the role of women in nineteenth-century America. Spur Up Your Pegasus provides important insights into the personal lives and private thoughts of a prominent political family. N° de réf. du libraire AAN9780873389884
