Robinson, Emily

Description

Holograph, signed.Emily Robinson asks Maria Weston Chapman for a contribution of goods to their anti-slavery fair. Robinson writes: "As the time for holding it approaches we grow tremblingly anxious about it, perhaps too nervously anxious for Christian philosophers. The vantage ground we have secured by long years of severe labor is too precious to be lost---even an inch of it. Yes much is depending on our next fair for the continued publication of the Bugle..." The lecturers under Mrs. Abby Kelley Foster's charge cannot help much in a pecuniary way, but they have been successful otherwise.
