  • This letter was written during a meeting at the Tabernacle. Garrison is in the chair, and the Tabernacle is full, not of the driftwood of New York, but the abolitionists and friends, "mixed with some little of the baser sort & some of the reverend clergy & their abettors." Wendell Phillips's absence is felt deeply. "Toussaint [L'Ouverture] has not come." Garrison opened the meeting; Francis Jackson read the treasurer's report, and Edmund [Quincy] read extracts from the annual report, which was applauded and hissed. Caroline describes the reading of letters from David Lee Child, Joshua Reed Giddings, and the speech of Charles C. Burleigh. She names the people on the platform. Caroline describes her journey to New York; at Norwich they waited two hours for the boat and the New York train ran over a cow. Daniel Webster was on the train, being "looked at as a show would be." On arriving, Caroline found that they were to stay at James Gibbons. "Mrs. [Lydia Maria] Child is off, of course, Mrs. [Eliza Francis] Merriam is here." She describes the impression made by Abby Kelley
