  • In this letter, Mary Anne Estlin refers to the division among American abolitionists. She wrote: "But while our sympathy is with you ...we are very anxious not to disgust the generality of minds here...by presenting to them those divisions & disputes amongst your body which would stand a chance of prejudicing them against the whole enterprise." Mary A. Estlin hopes that her father's little pamphlet will convince Maria Weston Chapman "that he does not compromise your principles." Estlin laments "the opprobrious epithets used by some of your number to those who differ from them." She tells about an old lady who had just finished a sofa cover for the box [to be sold at the Boston anti-slavery fair], but died before it was sent. Whereupon her friends recalled her last work and contributed money instead, at the amount of its value
