Is anyone on the LIST in the mood to comment on the supposed ties between
Susy Clemens and Louise Brownell?  Is there any consensus one way or the
other regarding the claims of some that they may have been lovers?  And that
this relationship explains Susy's sudden removal from Bryn Mawr in 1891??

I believe the strongest case for this is in Hoffman's biography but I seem
to recall another essay or chapter going into much more detail than Hoffman,
using letters and or some other documentation that Hoffman did not use.  But
I cannot recall the source.  Anyone know other sources that describe the
Susy-Louise relationship??
