So another review post. I’ve become fascinated by Lorenzo Snow. His thinking was deep, interesting and rather unique among Mormons. An intellectual among New England farmers, his success as a Mormon leader was due in part to remarkable inspiration and considerable hard-headedness.(grin) These two posts relate a letter from Lorenzo to his sister Eliza while Snow was studying at Oberlin College. His frankness and self-confidence show themselves, while ideas that would mark his later religious thought peak through. Moreover, it seems clear that he regards his sister as a worthy sounding board.
