Overview

In the Parsonage of Upper Wood
The sun was shining so brightly through the foremost windows of the old schoolhouse in Upper Wood, that the children of the first and second classes appeared as if covered with gold. They looked at one another, all with beaming faces, partly because the sun made them appear so, and partly for joy; for when the sunshine came through the last window, then the moment approached that the closing word would be spoken, and the children could rush out into the evening sunshine. The teacher was still busy with the illuminated heads of the second class, and indeed with some zeal, for several sentences had still to be completed, before the school could be closed. The teacher was standing before a boy who looked well-fed and quite comfortable, and who was looking up into the teacher's face with eyes as round as two little balls.

Nach der Dorfschule und Privatunterricht beim Pfarrer erhielt sie in Zürich drei Jahre Fremdsprachen- und Musikunterricht, kam dann für ein Jahr nach Yverdon (Neuenburger See) in ein Pensionat. Ab 1845 unterrichtete sie zu Hause ihre jüngeren Schwestern und trieb autodidaktische Literaturstudien.
