  • Deborah Weston plans to write Aunt Mary Weston a little every night so that she can tell her the news of the day. Mrs. Maria Weston Chapman received a "most affectionate note from H[arriet] Martineau, enclosing a lock of her hair, & saying how much she loved her, ..." Maria has been to see Mrs. Tracy to inquire whether black children would be received in the orphan asylum, Mr. [Ezra Stiles] Gannett having said that the one on Essex Street would receive them. John S.C. Abbott was asked by Angelina Ammidon and Miss [Catherine M.?] Sullivan to preach the "Samaritan sermon" (perhaps on behalf of the Samaritan Asylum for colored children) "was much affected when they described the case of the children." At the meeting of the Young Men's Anti-Slavery Society, [George L.?] Hillard "spoke as properly as could have been expected from him." George Thompson's picture was sold to [John S.] Kimball for $100. Deborah comments: "We are all feeling dreadfully about it." Mary S. Parker reported that "brother [Amos A.] Phelps is resolved that the convention shall be held in Boston." According to Dr. [Amos] Farnsworth, "the [Boston] Courier is out upon the report. It was very venomous." Mr. [Samuel J.] May has had a letter from Weymouth inviting him to form a society there. The [Boston] Centinel [sic] stated that [George] Bourne's "Picture of Slavery" had been republished with notes by George Thompson. "And there was a long tirade against the book & George [Thompson]."
