Title:
Letter from Charles F. Hovey, Gloucester, [England], to Mary Anne Estlin, 1854 Aug[ust] 1st
Description:
Charles F. Hovey writes to Mary Anne Estlin in regards to his passage home and apologizes for not writing sooner. He writes of reading of Mr. Pillsbury in the Liberator. He inquires into the character of Harriet Martineau. Edmund Quincy believes Bishop to be a bigot in his detestation of religion and writes his thoughts on this accusation. He asks her to give his regards to the Chapmans and the Westons as he has not seen them for a while as well as to Mr. Pillsbury.
