I should probably know this, but alas, I don't. Are there books, book chapters, or journal articles that discuss the ways in which early American women's letters were saved--or rather not saved--either by their husbands, future generations, or archives? I want to explore the discrepancy between the number of men's letters and the number of women's letters in a family. I know men often kept copies of letters they sent, but did women?
Deadline: February 1, 2019.
