Note
  • Holograph, signed
  • The beginning of this letter is missing. This letter was presumably sent to Anne Warren Weston
  • Mary Anne Estlin writes that the "New Organization is as hydraheaded [sic] here as with you ..." She explains how "some sinister report of Gannett or [William?] Pennington as to the misdeeds & dangerous heresies of the 'Garrisonians' will stop our supplies in many quarters for one year at least-- ..." She hopes that the falsehoods of New Organization proponents will be exposed. The Quakers will probably rally around Joseph Sturge. A new set of adherents is growing up among the dissenters, chiefly Congregationalists and Baptists. She wishes that Wendell Phillips and Mrs. Phillips could be persuaded to come here. She tells of the need to proceed discreetly and the methods used at "the meeting for the Crafts & Brown." She refers to a "foolish newspaper controversy" which "has furnished an opening for making facts known." She points out Miss Wigham's efforts to keep together a "retrograding" society. Mary A. Estlin's guests have arrived. She wants, with Mrs. Chapman's aid, to "put an end to Lewis Tappan's powers of mischief." [James] Grant's one weak point is his obsession with "Mr. Garrison's intruding his heresies on the A.S. platform." She hopes that Garrison's reply to Grant will appear in the Bristol Examiner. She mentions a controversy with R[ussell Lant] Carpenter
  • Also includes an envelope with the delivery address: Miss A. W. Weston, care of Messrs Goodhue & Co., New York, NY
