Note
  • Holograph
  • This manuscript was paginated nine through twelve by the author. The beginning and end of this letter are missing; it was presumably written by Richard Davis Webb to Maria Weston Chapman
  • In this letter, Richard Davis Webb asks why William Bassett's name has been retained as one of the vice presidents of the Massachusetts Anti-Slavery Society. Richard D. Webb tells of domestic news. Richard D. Webb is the treasurer and corresponding secretary of his little anti-slavery society, and he's happy to promote Maria Weston Chapman's objectives. One of Frederick Douglass's converts, who is a Methodist, said that Douglass's visit has done much good in this sect. The Rev. Simpson G. Morrisson, a young Independent minister, gave three admirable anti-slavery lectures. Richard D. Webb thinks Maria W. Chapman's report remarkably clear and full, though sometimes her "ironic flings" may puzzle the uninitiated. Robert Johnson, who wrote a long letter to the Liberator, is employed by Richard D. Webb's brother, James. Richard D. Webb received a pleasant letter from James N. Buffum, who is planning to return by steamboat by July 3. So are the Hutchinsons (singers); Mary Howitt "has addressed them in some beautiful lines." Buffum mentioned the chance of William Lloyd Garrison coming to the London meeting
  • On the third page of this manuscript there is a copy of Richard Davis Webb's financial account with Maria Weston Chapman. The list was copied by his wife, Hannah Webb, and is in her handwriting
