  • Typed transcipt. This is an incomplete transcription of a letter. To see the complete manuscript, see Call No. Ms.A.9.2 v.7, p.70
  • Yesterday afternoon they heard that "Garrison was in the hands of the mob with his clothes all torn off & a rope around his neck." Warren Weston brought the news that Garrison was safe in jail, rescued by a truckman named Aaron Cooley, "who took him up in his arms...& trampled through the crowd with all fury." Sarah Ann(?) called to tell that Mr. [Ebenezer] Bailey saved Garrison, "helped dress him when they got him into City hall, broke a man's arm with his umbrella in his defence." Deborah Weston tells about the "quiet & perfect composure" maintained by the Society. Daniel Parkman and Edward G. Prescott came to see Henry Grafton Chapman after he had left. "Maria [Weston Chapman] wiled [sic] them both to wait. ...They came thinking that George Thompson was there, to advise his instant removal. I speak says Prescott as a man just from a mob. And I listen says Maria as a woman just from a mob." After a long talk, they parted with protestations of friendship. Four more men came, including James L. Homer and Henry Williams. Maria spoke to them and "she giving it to them all the time." [The transcription ends here. See the original letter.] Melania Ammidon reported this morning that the mob had repeatedly cried "...to West Street. Chapman's..." George Thompson's picture and the Chapman's children have been sent away
  • Written on the last page of the original manuscript is the note: "everything is quiet & calm now."
