Letter from Lucia Weston, Boston, [Mass.], to Anne Warren Weston, April 1839

@ Boston Public Library


Holograph, signed.Lucia Weston writes that Dr. and Mrs. Charles Theodor C. Follen called while Maria Weston Chapman was away at Taunton. Lucia commented: "Mrs. Follen seemed to think a great deal of Dr. [William Ellery] Channing's book." Lucia compares the seamen's fair with the anti-slavery fair. She comments on the letters from Angelina and Sarah Grimke to the [Samuel] Philbricks as "the most ludicrous stuff." Angelina has not made up her mind and wants facts. Maria Weston Chapman went to Lynn to deliver a speech and returned the next morning, having given "general satisfaction." John A. Collins is worn out collecting money from Lynn. Lucia said: "We have found out that Lynn the last year has given a thousand and odd dollars to the cause." Maria Weston Chapman will probably not go to New York; Henry G. Chapman cannot go on his father's account. Lucia said: "The pledge is going to be paid the first day of May.
