Title:
Letter from Richard Davis Webb, Dublin, [Ireland], to Mary Anne Estlin, 1853 June 25
Description:
Richard Davis Webb writes to Mary Anne Estlin in regards to sending Miss Weston's letter. He writes that he does not wish to distract her attention from her father's "feeble state" but sends her a copy of the "Anti-Slavery Advocate no.10" in which he answers Mr. Bright's pamphlet and takes Frederick Douglass "down a peg or two." He does not like the fact that her father pays so much for the Advocate's expenses.
