  • Holograph, signed with initials
  • Anne Warren Weston found Ann Phillips "raving with indignation" at an execution that Wendell Phillips labored to prevent. It was the case of a black man named Goode. "We carried round a petition in Weymouth & got 400 names...but that wretched [Governor] Briggs refused" to commute the sentence. Anne gives a description of her sisters' bonnets. People are looking at Emma (who is to go to France) "as if she had been elected to some wondrous dignity." She tells of the "Town & Country Club," which was "a scheme got up by [Ralph] Waldo Emerson to give Mr. [Amos Bronson] Alcott a living." It has about 90 members, among them Longfellow, Lowell, Garrison, and Parker. "There has been a terrible fight whether women should be admitted." (Thomas) Wentworth Higginson was to propose Mrs. Follen, but someone has proposed Maria (W. Chapman). Eunice (Mrs. John A.) Collins died of consumption
