  • Anne W. Weston attended a meeting of the Historical Society at Chauncy Place Church, where John Quincy Adams held forth. "It was a pretty poor affair." Anne also attended the Anniversary Peace meeting, with an address given by Andrew P. Peabody; he has "something of the beauty of non-resistance." Lewis Tappan nominated Mr. Pennington, a colored man, as a delegate to London Peace Society. Amos A. Phelps and Nathaniel Colver are appointing agents to the Peace Convention. "The [New England Anti-Slavery] Convention opened with much pomp & circumstance & the great Miller Tabernacle has been thronged all day." Edmund Quincy was made president. A committee was appointed to see John Tyler when he visits Boston and ask him to emancipate his slaves. Stephen Symonds Foster made one of his violent speeches and Caleb Stetson of Medford a witty, funny one. In the afternoon, the principal speaker was "by S.S. Foster on one note & Wendell [Phillips] on the other." Anne met H. Farnsworth, who said that his father (Dr. Amos Farnsworth) was in Paris. Dr. Henry I. Bowditch told Anne about a meeting of the Unitarian Association, where John Parkman introduced two anti-slavery resolutions. Anne attended the evening meeting at Faneuil Hall; the speakers were William A. White, Edmund Quincy, and S.S. Foster, who "was hissed some." John A. Collins has returned and has accepted the agency
  • Included, is a fragment signed with the initials "A.W.W.," which may belong with the unsigned letter. Anne W. Weston writes that she will try to send a letter to Warren Weston by tomorrow's steamer. "Sylvia Owen & Ann Terry [Phillips] seem to miss Caroline the most of anybody."
