  • Richard Davis Webb tells that Frederick Douglass was more eloquent everywhere than in Dublin, where there were comparatively poor audiences, little opposition, and "no great rich people to pique him to effort." Mr. John Bishop Estlin was greatly delighted with William Lloyd Garrison as his house guest. Richard D. Webb quotes from Mr. Estlin's letter regarding Garrison and Douglass. Joseph Barker is a remarkable man, a popular independent preacher, author, and printer, whom Richard D. Webb has crammed with anti-slavery information. James Haughton "is a jewel." Richard D. Webb "preaches Garrison right and left." After visiting Harriet Martineau, Garrison, Thompson, and Douglass are going to Scotland. Richard D. Webb is charmed by George Thompson; however, "Garrison is moored to the rock of principle---Thompson is not." Richard D. Webb praises Henry C. Wright, who will stay with him. Richard D. Webb protests at being asked to write for the Liberty Bell; he feels inferior to the "Boston Board people." He calls attention to "Another Ten Cent Rebellion" in the Christian Century, which was a slap at Maria Weston Chapman. Webb tells of a compliment paid him by Mary Howitt; he describes Howitt and and her house
