  • Anne Warren Weston begins the letter with a description of an Anti-Slavery meeting, Rev. May's opening prayer, a report by Miss L. Ball, letters read, etc. She called on Mrs. Lydia Maria Child. She says Ann Chapman and Mrs. Robinson were chosen to replace Melania Ammidon and Mrs. Drew as officers of the Boston Female Anti-Slavery Society. "...it looks 'kernspeckle.'" She visited Mrs. Lydia Maria Child at Mrs. Ellis Gray Loring's. She mentions a prejudice against color on the part of Mrs. Cox of the New York Society. "The Tappans have none of this prejudice therefore they and Mrs. Cox are hardly on speaking terms." Mentions Henry Cowing. Assigned to Ward 10 (Essex Street) to collect signatures on petitions. "Whittier I liked particularly. Pity he is a Quaker. I can't set my cap at him with any conscience at all, for I certainly can't turn Quaker & he grows more & more Quakerfied." She mentions Anne Terry Greene's illness. "I fear sometimes she will never get fully well." Discusses joining a church. Criticizes Richard Hildreth
