About John Sewall Pratt

"John Sewall Pratt Alcott (the last relative of Louisa May Alcott, the beloved authoress of Concord), was the son of Anna Bronson Alcott, the sister of Louisa. She was the "Meg" in Miss Alcott's delightful story of "Little Women," and was one of the twins. For many years he lived in Concord with his aunt in the old homestead called "Orchard House." He was legally adopted by his aunt and became one of her heirs. In early life he served in the publishing house of Roberts Brothers, but was later in the insurance business. Alcott had planned to publish a volume concerning the literary giants of Concord, — Ralph Waldo Emerson, Henry B. Thoreau, Miss Alcott and others, but did not accomplish the task."
