  • Anne Warren Weston begins the letter with a discussion of Mrs. Maria Weston Chapman's report to the Boston Female Anti-Slavery Society. A committee met at Mrs. Chapman's home to alter "any phraseology that they might deem objectionable." Mary S. Parker favored striking out the part referring to the Free Church and Deacon John Gulliver. At a meeting of the Society the matter was voted upon and Mrs. Chapman's Report was again accepted. "Miss [Catherine M.] Sullivan & the Balls felt bitter bad." The report "is principally taken up with the ministry and deals with the Pastoral Letter properly, also with Mr. [Charles] Fitch & Deacon [John] Gulliver & gives most excellent dabs to Mr. Stearns of Cambridgeport, Robert [Bernard] Hale, Mr. Blodget & others. Parts of it are really sublime." Anne thinks there must be a sifting of their society soon, "but there is genuine grit in it." She gives various news of friends and relatives. "Elizabeth Moorfield is supposed to be engaged to Augustus Richards. Mr. Garrison has written a long article in my book ... Ann Terry [Greene Phillips] and Wendell [Phillips] are as happy as Lords." Anne Weston and Maria Weston Chapman are on a committee to arrange for a course of lectures to be given by the Misses Grimke before "our Society." Anne Weston called on the Grimkes, who are going to S. Scituate to lecture in Samuel J. May's meetinghouse. Richard Hildreth was here and is "thoroughly whiggified." He is going to have a trial on November 14
