Letter from Charlotte to Samuel Cowles, 1840 March 11.

@ Connecticut Historical Society


Letter from Charlotte Cowles of Farmington, Connecticut, to her brother Samuel Cowles of Hartford, Connecticut. Charlotte and the Anti-Slavery Society women met to cut out patterns to make purses and guard-chains, morning-caps and night-caps, lamp mats and bags, baby's aprons, false collars, and needle books for the upcoming fair. The north district of town contributed the most for supplies. She asked about the Hartford ladies and what they were making. Seriousness was growing with preaching the next two days. The Young Ladies' Society met at Thomas Wadsworth's house.
