Rate this:
Sophia Davenport writes to Caroline Weston in regards to her mail being delayed. She writes of her delight in receiving George Thompson's autograph: "I look at it every day, what would I give for one glimpse of his beautiful face, I envy you the delightful privilege corresponding with him, his letters in the Liberator are splendid." She tries to get a man named Mr. Elliot to convert to abolitionism. She writes of an argument with a slaveholder in which she was joined by Miss Cleaveland. She writes that balls are the main type of formal evening entertainment in St. Louis and she had no desire to go but her "friends persuaded me to and I am not sorry that I went, it is the only way one can get acquainted here, the people are not fond of sociable visiting." She met a young Scotsman named Mackenzie. She regrets that Caroline has had to give up her school. She asks what happened to Hannah Hinckley. She wishes Harriet Martineau would write something of slavery. She mentions a Mr. Schutze who had met the Westons in Boston. She was unable to attend a lecture the night previously about the legal relations between husband and wife. She heard it was interesting and she knows "he was on the husband's side of course and thought the wife ought to submit and obey &c."
