[Susan Taber?] writes to Debora Weston in regards the anti-slavery society preparing materials for a sale to raise funds. She writes of her surprise for the news of Angelina E. Grimke's marriage to Theodore T. Weld. She does not like the way Bancroft has introduced "our principles and members in his history-for though his notices are intended to be rather commentary, we think he shows very little appreciation of the principles we profess." She remarks on the mob in Philadelphia, "a place numbering so many consistent advocates of ultra peace principles." She comments on books. She refers to George Bancroft and says "the Quakers do not like the way in which he has introduced our principles and members in his history." Jonathan Dymond is a special favorite of hers. She discusses Debora's loss in [Orestes Augustes] Brownson's strength and remarks that at Worcester "there was something in his manners and appearance and occasionally in his sentiments, then, that struck me very painfully in his connection with the abolition cause." She writes of her mother's recovery from illness. A second sheet is a posted receipt to Mr. Henry Chapman for the amount of $8.25.
