Having published the collected writings of Elizabeth Seton, the Seton Writings Committee decided that correspondence to Elizabeth should be published as well. As an illustration of the fresh perspectives that could be gleaned from this publication, this article summarizes letters about the conflict over superiors for the Sisters of Charity. The article explains the circumstances surrounding the resignation of the first superior, William Dubourg, and the disagreements between Elizabeth and Dubourg’s successor, Jean-Baptiste David.
