Edmund Quincy encloses a letter for Richard Davis Webb to be sent jointly with any letter mailed by Maria Weston Chapman. Edmund Quincy gives Mr. Spear's account of the convention at Medway. He quotes from Parker Pillsbury's attack on the clergy and hopes that Frederick Douglass's experiences at the convention have convinced him of the evil nature of the Liberty Party. Edmund Quincy regrets that Charles Dicken's Martin Chuzzlewit is being published in parts, as it will take too long to read it. Mr. Felton told Edmund Quincy that Charles Dickens was a remarkably temperate man.
