  • Evelina A. S. Smith is living in an anti-slavery desert and yearns for abolition sympathy. She has tried all kinds of people, "but they talk a different language or they say nothing." She wishes that she might always feel "the faith and hope that seems to shine in Mrs. Follen's countenance and conversation." Evelina A. S. Smith's illness kept her from attending the annual meeting. She tells of Mr. Increase S. Smith's confining occupations. She admires William Lloyd Garrison's "piece" on a free press. C. L. Remond delivered two fine lectures here, but they were attended by next to nobody. She asks if Sydney [Howard Gay] is enjoying the honeymoon. Evelina A. S. Smith has been reading Gibbons and she is attending a history class and studying German. Evelina A. S. Smith believes "the early Christians were very much like the non-resistants and come outers of the present time modified somewhat by the spirit of the age, but my friends here, know nothing real[l]y of non-resistants or come outers."
