Title

Portland Transcript. Vol. 27, no. 28. October 22, 1853

Description

The Portland Transcript was published weekly from 1849 to 1910. Its tagline was "An independent family journal of literature, news, &c."

This issue contains an article entitled "Nathaniel Hawthorne on women's rights." In his short statement (p. 221) the author contends that women should remain within their own proper sphere: "Her place is at man's side. Her office, that of sympathizer; the unreserved, unquestioning believer . . . . The heart of true womanhood knows where its own sphere is, and never seeks to stray beyond it."
