  • Lucia Weston describes a meeting in Lowell, Mass., where Orange Scott spoke and moved an adjournment which deprived "the other side" of an opportunity to speak. The mayor of the city offered the town hall to "the right side," and Oliver Johnson and John A. Collins "did very well indeed and allowed [Alanson] St. Clair to speak and he told so many lies that they were perfectly frightened." The "peelers" have organized a new society. Mrs. Maria W. Chapman spoke very well in Salem. Dr. Amos Farnsworth and Oliver Johnson heard William Lloyd Garrison read his address at the Chapman's home and they also listened to Mrs. Chapman read parts of Right and Wrong in Boston. Johnson berated Martha Ball for her hidden desertion of Garrison and the Liberator. Mrs. Lydia Maria Child paid a visit and told amusing stories
  • This letter is written on the blank space and pages of a circular (flier) advertising an anti-slavery fair in October, sponsored by the women of the Massachusetts Anti-Slavery Society, with the object to raise funds to sustain Rev. John A. Collins as general agent of the Massachusetts Society
