Description

Holograph, signed.Emma Forbes Weston says that Edmund [Quincy?] has received a witty letter from Richard D. Webb. The letter told about his effort to have the Americanisms sifted out of his edition of Kiss for a Blow, and "then the first children into whose hands it was put were stumped at the first page." Wendell Phillips saw Charles Sumner, to whom Lord Morpeth had just written of the pleasure he and his circle had in the LIberty Bell. William Lloyd Garrison's lecture went off very well. Emma gives the names of guests and also family news.
