  • Holograph
  • This unsigned manuscript is presumably by Maria Weston Chapman. She begins the letter by telling of the correspondence with the executive committee in New York, which amounts to 50 pages. Chapman writes: "We thought that the loss of time & tide---the misapprehension & constitutional scruples---& the evidently wounded feelings on their part, were sufficient reasons whey we should not contest our claim." They are not resigning in a body, lest enemies of the cause should "misrepresent it as a division of heart, when in fact there is only a division of opinion." She regrets "that our views cannot prevail." She wishes that the addressee could take a higher ground on political action, and come out of the government, which is pro-slavery. She argues against the third party. Chapman comments: "James G. Birney is a bad man. That's reason enough against the 3'd party."
