Letter from Mary Anne Estlin, Bristol, [England], to Anne Warren Weston, October 1, 1850, [and] Monday morn[ing], Oct. 7, 1850

@ Boston Public Library


Holograph, signed.In this letter to Anne Warren Weston, Mary A. Estlin primarily discusses donations of money and merchandise (Honiton lace, books, bookstand) sent to the Boston Bazaar. The books were labeled Mrs. Geo. Dighton and Mr. H. Dighton. Mary A. Estlin asks that a report be sent to Mrs. Hayes, the wife of a liberal clergyman of the Church of England and sister of Sir Henry Lawrence and Captain Lawrence. She requests that the services of Mr. Ayers and the blind people be mentioned in the reports of the Bazaar. The continued indisposition of her father has prevented Mary A. Estlin from finishing the packet sooner. She was pleased with Anne W. Weston's reply to Miss Wigham. She wants to hear more about the disturbance at the Faneuil Hall meeting. Miss Wigham assured Mary A. Estlin that Anne W. Weston's letter has "proved helpful in overcoming people's scruples about the Bazaar, especially in Perth."This letter is accompanied by a sheet of paper that was used as an envelope, with the delivery address: Miss Anne W. Weston, Weymouth, Mass.
