Reading: Jonathan Edwards Letter to Deborah Hatheway

June 3, 1741

This letter is posted on Blackboard under course documents.

Imagine how someone like Deborah might view the play "Romeo and Juliet" and contrast this early American view of living properly with the values Shakespeare presents in his play.
