Description

Holograph, signed.Richard Davis Webb has heard from a relative that Parker Pillsbury's wife and daughter positively refuse to come to England in the event that Parker Pillsbury comes to England. Webb also heard from Mrs. [Henry] Turner who considers the propriety of Pillsbury's coming as an agent very doubtful. "You will think of my having placed at one time undue confidence in Douglas[s] -- but ...keener witted people than I am were not quite free from the same mistake." Elizabeth Pease Nichol was in Dublin. "She is happily married and is a darling--as staunch & true & openhearted as ever. Her huband is not at all equal to herself--but he is very passable & she has taken a warm & affectionate interest in his family..." He wishes that Maria Chapman could get Garrison to write to Elizabeth Pease Nichol.
