@ Boston Public Library


Holograph, signed.Abby Kelley Foster informs Maria Weston Chapman that Stephen Symonds Foster is available for the evening of Thursday, Dec. 30 at [Faneuil?] Hall. Abby regrets that she will be unable to attend because her baby is teething. She hopes to wean the baby at nine months and then be able to accompany her husband in his labors as early as March. She longs to be in New York "breaking up the bridges between the true and and the false." She fears that Frederick Douglass's paper "will confirm the half and half state of things in New York." She learns that Joseph C. Hathaway is to be Douglass's "partner in the affair---You know his tendencies---..."
