Elizabeth Simpson writes to Maria Weston Chapman in regards to laboring alone for the anti-slavery cause. She says that it was just as well that the lecturers who came to her town did not try to speak. They would have been pelted with eggs. She speaks of an epidemic. She is a widow with two children alive. One is married to a slaveholder in the District of Columbia. She writes, "I visited them....I was told that my bold..language on abolition could not be endured by the inhabitants." She talks about herself and says "I will give a Clear Deed for 2 acers where there is stone enough on the spot for a house." She offers to build a house to be devoted to the anti-slavery cause, provided Maria can loan her $1000. A rough draft of Maria's reply appears on page 4.
