Reviews of The Queen's Twin
Susan Burley Cabot
According to Richard Cary, Susan Burley Cabot (1822-1907) was a close friend of Jewett. Jewett spent part of each winter at the older woman's home. Cabot was married to the former mayor of Salem, MA, Joseph S. Cabot (Sarah Orne Jewett Letters p. 87). In the 1907 codicil to her will, Jewett mentions a legacy from Susan B. Cabot.
