Title:
Extract of a letter from Louis Alexis Chamerovzow, Paris, [France], to Mary Anne Estlin, 1854 August 5th
Description:
Louis Alexis Chamerovzow writes to Mary Anne Estlin in regards to his visit and travels to Versailles with Mrs. Chapman and her "elegant family." He discusses Mrs. Chapman and Miss Weston and their opinions of the Broad St. Society [British and Foreign Anti-Slavery Society]. He says Mr. Steinthal's letter took him by surprise. He discusses his conduct in the Hemining affair and says "If Mr. Thompson and Mr. Chesson thought my conduct in that affair was open to censure they ought to have told me instead of w[oul]d it seems that one or other or both entertained an infavorable impression."
