  • Holograph, signed with initials
  • Anne Warren Weston reports that Mrs. Grace Emerson was full of wrath at Mrs. Lindsey, who was "astonished at the impudence of the coloured people in going to Gurley's meeting & taking their places anywhere." Anne heard Mr. John F. Emerson's report of the church meeting, where Mr. Beane introduced the subject of slavery in a "very mild quiet speech." Beane "does not love to let me know the truth about the church... The Emersons are all ready for excommunication any day." Anne cannot think of a riot without a tremor. She refers to Latimer: "Is there no way of breaking jail?" Mr. R called and Mrs. Beane asked whether he was married and then "fell to surmising" (the possibility of a romance with Anne). She relates a conversation in which Mrs. Beane said that she liked Deborah more than Anne
