First American edition: Hannah More (1745-1833) was a religious writer, a member of the Bluestockings, and was firmly anti-slavery. More and her sisters raised money for the poor by means of their religious Cheap Repository Tracts, yet opened schools for the poor to teach them to read but not to write. More was concerned about women's neglect of their familial obligations so considered female education unwise. While she disparaged her own career, her works were enormously popular.
