  • Maria Weston Chapman writes that her husband Henry "is no better, but fails sensibly." Her daughter, "Anne, the little, goes to school out at our back door under the church, to a Miss Lothrop, who once went to school to Caroline." [John A.?] Collins "looks like to die I think." Little Henry is preparing at Mr. Thayer's. James Gibbons is expected next Sunday. Warren Weston is to sail by steamer Saturday, and Maria is getting a quantity of letters ready for England with the Liberty Bell in mind. The anti-slavery fair will start shortly. Maria Weston leaves her husband only to go to the market shop. She describes his illness and symptoms. Chapman says: "He thinks he is in consumption, but why he must of necessity be in one I cannot see there seems no reason why he shouldn't get well, & if it were a hopeful person I should think he would. As it is, I have only to endeavour not to despair."
