Title:
Letter from Eliza Wigham, Edinburgh, [Scotland], to Mary Anne Estlin, 1853 [April] 12
Description:
Eliza Wigham writes to Mary Anne Estlin in regards to sending her the article, "Friend of the Fugitive." She says that Guthrie's article is not worth replying to. She favors Mary Anne's father's letter to Mr. Smeal. She mentions [Harriet Beecher] Stowe and says she is uncertain whether she will come to Glasgow. She writes of Stowe's character. She writes, "I think it very probable she may see through the profession of Anti-Slavery zeal."
