  • Assuming that Maria had already received letters informing her of the death of her little daughter Gertrude on April 6, after an illness of two days, Anne gives assurance that "every thing that care & tenderness could do for her relief was done." After a page of condolence, Anne proceeds on to various news. Elizabeth Pease, in a "most excellent letter," spoke with kindness of Collins and thought his mission would do great good in England. Joseph Sturge is in America. Anne attended the meetings of the Ministry Convention. "There was too much uproar & too little wish for the truth to suit me." Amos A. Phelps has published a book on the Sabbath, including "some little account of the Convention...trying to show its Infidel character." [The Sabbath, by Rev. Amos A. Phelps went into a second edition in 1842, which includes an account of the Anti-Bible Convention.] It is not known who the editor of the "Free American" is, Charles T. Torrey having resigned. (Silas?) Hawley is very ill. The quarterly meeting of the Boston Female Society, with only 35 present, was very good; Sophia L. Little making a good address. Garrison is laboring devotedly as lecturer. "New Organization quietly going down." James G. Birney married Gerrit Smith's sister-in-law. Henry B. Stanton is studying law. With Mrs. Lydia Maria Child going to the Standard, it will stand a better financial chance. "Mr. [William] Ladd is dead. So there goes the American Peace Society."
