Fuller, Sarah Margaret, Marchioness D'ossoli 1810-

Author; born in Cambridge, Mass., May 23, 1810; at the age of seventeen read French, Italian, Spanish, and German fluently; became a teacher in Boston in 1835; and, two years later, in Providence, R. I. She formed classes for young ladies in Boston for training in conversation, and the next year (1840) became editor of the Dial, the organ of the Transcendentalists (q. v.), to which she contributed articles on the social condition of women. In 1844 she became literary editor of the New York Tribune. Miss Fuller travelled in Europe, and, [488] visiting Italy in 1847, she married the Marquis d'ossoli. In 1850, returning to her native country with her husband and child, the vessel was wrecked on the southern coast of Long Island, and all three were drowned, July 16, 1850. Her writings are held in the highest estimation, and have made a deep impression upon features of social life in America.
