Title:
Letter from George Thompson, London, [England], to Richard David Webb, 1846 July 8
Description:
George Thompson writes to Henry Clarke Wright in regards to events concerning the Raja of Saltara's case. They have induced the Government/the Queens to make "some alteration of a beneficial kind in the Rajas circumstances and the late Ministers have by so doing and otherwise prepared the way for the new incumbents." He writes that he will be preoccupied with this case and will therefore not be able to contribute to his antislavery pamphlet or in preparation of the August convention. He has the pamphlet containing his Edinburgh speeches and the caricature. He speaks of his poor health.
