Founding Mothers
#1
I just started reading Cokie Roberts' Founding Mothers and it is a joy to read. I hope to do a review of the book when I am finished, but feel as if I must take notes as I read for it is rich with imagery and stories of the Women who inhabited "the domestic sphere" as it was called in the eighteenth century. I'm only up to page 17 and already have read about three incredible Women's really incredible and impressive lives. But I laughed out loud when I read what one of them wrote in a letter to a friend: "Billy Vance is going to be married- did you ever hear the like? Pray what can he do with a wife? He is more of a Woman than a man.," and "Mr. Spencer is under petticoat government, that is certain."
