The identity of the Mrs. J. P. Morgan who translated this text is uncertain. Three candidates are proposed by Christine Nelson, a curator at the Morgan Library: Amelia Sturges Morgan (1835-62), first wife of J. Pierpont Morgan Frances Tracy Morgan (1842-1924), second wife of J. Pierpont Morgan Jane Norton Grew Morgan (1863-1925), wife of J. P. Morgan, Jr. It is not known which of the three read German and had an interest in poetry. (source: AGO Founders Hymnal, p. 97) Go to person page >
