  • Holograph, signed with initials
  • Deborah Weston writes about Ellis Bartlett, who is the assistant to Mr. John F. Emerson, and is an abolitionist, "I hope something can be made of him." Mr. Means [a minister] told Deborah that "he hoped [John A.] Collins was in his proper place at last, for he had been almost every thing in the course of his life." Deborah further details gossip about Collins's past, transmitted by Mary Congdon. Having learned that the Grimkes have written to the [Samuel] Philbricks, Deborah is "dying to know" what they said. She wonders why Maria Weston Chapman signed her article "an old country abolitionist." Andrew Robeson told Deborah that he was surprised at Amos A. Phelps's attitude toward peace, for two or three years ago he took "the ultra peace side." Mr. James Howland, who is "considerably interested in the cause," has just returned from New York. "The impression is all abroad that the abolitionists are trying to get rid of Garrison." Deborah Weston would like to go to New York. She comments on the success of the Weymouthians in regard to money, and is thankful that the pledge was redeemed. She remarks on the vanity of "the impudent [Henry Brewster] Stanton." Emma Weston is 14 years old today. A Mr. Peabody was "much smitten" with Deborah and wants to be better acquainted
  • In the postscript, written cross-wise on the top of page 1, Deborah writes: "The Grimkes I think are extinct."
