Emily Chubbuck Judson (1817–1854) was a nationally known writer of the mid-nineteenth century. With pieces appearing alongside those by Edgar Allan Poe and James Fenimore Cooper, she walked in literary company second to none. She wrote children’s books, essays, and stories. During her fascinating life, she was a prolific letter writer. Volume 5 covers October 1, 1851–September 30, 1852. This is the year that Emily Judson worked with Dr. Francis Wayland, president of Brown University, on preparing A Memoir of the Life and Labors of Rev. Adoniram Judson, D.D. This volume is filled with letters from prominent ministers and missionaries of that time, all of whom were involved in the mission movement, and whose lives and ministries had been greatly impacted by Adoniram Judson. There is also correspondence from the Judson children who took Emily as their “new Mamma.”

Volume 6 covers the last twenty months of Emily Chubbuck Judson’s life. She is increasingly impaired by the illness that was to claim her life on June 2, 1854. Most of the letters in this volume are from the Judson children—Abby Ann, Adoniram “Addy,” Elnathan “Elly,” Henry, and Edward, as well as George Dana Boardman, the son of George and Sarah Boardman (who became the second “Mrs. Judson”). They all addressed Emily as “Mamma.” An appendix on the Judson children encompasses the time after Emily’s death through 1914.

Volume 7 begins with a poem written when Emily was nine years old (1826) and ends with “My Angel Guide,” written in 1853 prior to her death in June 1854. Between are several hundred of her poems, many of them newly discovered in the papers of her great-grandson, Dr. Stanley Hanna. This is all of her poetry published and unpublished as we know it. Also included are twenty fictional pieces from the magazines that are not included in her several published anthologies. The seven-volume series of The Life and Letters of Emily Chubbuck Judson (Fanny Forester) is published in cooperation with the American Baptist Historical Society.
