LEE, Hannah Farnham Sawyer, author, born in Newburyport, Massachusetts, in 1780; died in Boston, Massachusetts, 27 December, 1865. She was the daughter of a physician of Newburyport, married George Gardiner Lee of Boston, early in life, and resided in the latter city for many years. Her first acknowledged publication was an appendix to Hannah Adams's memoir of herself (Boston, 1832). This was succeeded by "Grace Sewnour" (New York, 1835), and "Three Experiments in Living" (1838), a work suggested by the commercial disasters of the time, which passed through more than thirty editions in the United States, and as many as ten in England. Her works exercised a wide anal healthful influence on the youth of the first quarter of the nineteenth century, Her other writings include many tracts and essays that were published anonymously, and "Eleanor Fulton," a sequel to "Three Experiments in Living" (Boston, 1838); "Familiar Sketches of the Old Painters" (1838); "The Huguenots in France and America" (1842); "Stories from Life" (1849); "Memoir of Pierre Toussaint" (1853); and "History of Sculptors and Sculpture" (1854).
