Richard Cary Morse, for whom Morse Hall is named, had this to say about reading letters addressed to his daughter:

“I recognize the sacredness of the seal & the seal of [my daughter’s] letters no less than others… But I take it for granted that she has all confidence in me, & that her secrets… are safe in her father’s keeping.”
