  • Holograph, signed
  • There are three manuscripts with the Call No. Ms.A.9.2 v.25, p.40. The first is letter by Richard Davis Webb to [Anne Warren Weston], dated Nov. 1, 1850. In comparing himself with Mr. John Bishop Estlin, Richard Davis Webb says that he never had college training and was brought up a Quaker. Webb wants to know how George Thompson will get on in America and is eager for an account of the meeting in Faneuil Hall patronized by Edmund Quincy's father. The anti-slavery fair contributions from Dublin will go in the box from Cork. If Mrs. Maria Weston Chapman could spend the next winter in England, there would be some chance of her exerting influence valuable to the cause. Webb read in the "British Friend" of the "rascally way the Quakers in Philadelphia behaved to two very orthodox brethren from London" who tried to hold a meeting to interest Friends in the emancipated West Indian slaves. Richard Davis Webb's sister, Debora Thompson, with her husband and six children may be in or near Boston. Mr. Thompson having failed in business, has migrated the family to America
  • There is another letter by Richard Davis Webb to Anne Warren Weston, [1850]. Richard D. Webb has received a letter from Caroline Weston, who wants him to tell Anne Warren Weston about the "explosion of zeal on the part of certain Glasgow ladies." Webb remarks that "such women as those of Glasgow are not to be reached by reason." He believes that the Rev. Mr. Pennington was at the bottom of the plan to divert money from the fair to the N.Y. Committee of Vigilance. Eliza Wigham fears that as a result of the circulation of the (Glasgow) letter, the Edinburgh Aid Society may send nothing to the bazaar this year. Webb comments on Scotch bigotry. The Estlins have gone to Switzerland with the Anne Warren Weston's "faction." Webb wishes he could join them. He was asked to write for the Liberty Bell. Webb praises his sister-in-law Mrs. Maria Waring and his wife Hannah Webb
  • Also with the Call No. Ms.A.9.2 v.25, p.40, are two unrelated items consisting of lists of contributors from the British Isles to the Boston Anti-Slavery Bazaar, in [1850]. In one list, the names are arranged by cities. The second list includes the names of people in both the United Kingdom and America. The author and recipient are unknown
