From Wikipedia:

Mary Moody Emerson (1774-1863) was known not only as her nephew Ralph Waldo Emerson's "earliest and best teacher," but also as a "spirited and original genius in her own right" (Richardson on back cover of Origins). Ralph Waldo Emerson considered her presence in his life a "blessing which nothing else in education could supply" (Emerson Lectures 432); and her vast body of writing—her thousands of letters and journal entries spanning more than fifty years—"became one of Emerson's most important books" (Richardson 25). Her surviving documents reveal the voice of a "woman who […] had something to say to her contemporaries and who can continue to speak to ours" about "the great truths that were the object of her life's pilgrimage" (Cole Origins xl, xxvii).
