Letter from Sarah Pugh, Philad[elphi]a, [Penn.], to Maria Weston Chapman, 1/29 [18]48

@ Boston Public Library


Holograph, signed.Sarah Pugh tells of a subject of much thought and discussion that was brought before the Executive Committee (of the Philadedelphia society): "It is proposed to send an agent to G. Britain & Ireland on behalf of our cause,---not one to call large meetings---not a 'lion' but one who would by private intercourse and in the social circle make known our wants interest persons in the cause---and show them how they might aid us." Sarah Pugh asks: "Would it be wise to send our J. Miller Mc'Kim---supposing he would consent to give himself up to the work?" Some are prognosticating a visit to England by James and Lucretia Mott. Sarah Pugh alludes, first humorously, then seriously to "a manner of conducting a Bazaar" which caused great scandal---apparently the raffling of articles at the Boston fair.
