[The "Marie" referred to is "Marie, ou L'esclavage aux Etats-Unis" or "Marie; or, Slavery in the United States," by Gustave Auguste de Beaumont de la Bonniniere, Paris, 1835.] Anne, by referring to her journal, gives a chronological account of happenings, beginning with February 1. Richard Hildreth, spending an evening here, "tried to speak naturally" about "The Slave," but could not. Anne to her sorrow "that he was growing as whiggy as possible," and fears that he has come to Boston "to act for that vile Houghton." Anne declines the invitation to the Ellis Gray Lorings hardly considering it right to [sus?]tenance Mrs. Loring in always having her company Sundays.
