Letter from Maria Weston Chapman, Paris, [France], to Edward Morris Davis, Lucretia Mott, and Sarah Pugh, March 4th, 1849

@ Boston Public Library


Holograph, signed.Maria Weston Chapman refers to a letter by Sarah Pugh, regarding the advisability of sending an agent to England to solicit for the Philadelphia fair. At the time, Maria W. Chapman did not think it advisable because of the provincial nature of the Philadelphia bazaar. Now, Chapman suggests that they secure all possible advantages "by assuming, yourselves, after consultation & agreement with our Committee in Boston, the style and title of '16th National A.S. Bazaar, at Philadelphia.'" Because of their commitments for the Freeman, they could not, like the Bostonians, turn over the whole proceeds to the National Society, but they could state that all money above $1000 would be paid over as usual. The Liberty Bell, printed in Boston, should have the imprimatur of Philadelphia.
