Letter from Richard Davis Webb, Dublin, [Ireland], to Anne Warren Weston, Oct. 20, 1840

@ Boston Public Library


Holograph, signed.Richard Davis Webb offers his contribution for the Liberty Bell. He also sends a letter from Edward Rushton to Thomas Paine for publication. James Haughton contributed an article at Richard D. Webb's request. [The two articles mentioned and the letter from Rushton were printed in the Liberty Bell for 1849.] Webb comments on Haughton's verbosity and suggests that Anne Warren Weston leave out as much as she pleases, "only put something in---for he is a true man---one of the best men I have any knowledge of." Webb remarks that there are "very few who know of or care for the cause here---and almost no literary people." Richard D. Webb saw in the Liberator a notice by Edmund Quincy of a book called the Young Abolitionists; if it is good, Webb would like a few copies of it. [The Young Abolitionists; Or Conversations on Slavery, is by Jane Elizabeth Jones, Boston, 1848.]
