Dur­ing the five years he spent writ­ing his new book, Rush: Rev­o­lu­tion, Mad­ness & Ben­jamin Rush, the Vi­sion­ary Doc­tor Who Be­came a Found­ing Fa­ther, Fried re­al­ized that the “found­ing fa­thers are much more in­ter­est­ing when you see them as part of their fam­i­lies.” In “A New Found­ing Mother” (p. 16), he turns his eye to Ju­lia Rush, whose pre­vi­ously un­seen let­ters shed es­sen­tial light on her hus­band and give in­sight into her own re­mark­able life.
