Maria Weston Chapman discusses contributions from English abolitionists. She is using her influence to bring about the right decision in the Alabama case. Chapman says: "I have a new bonnet--black lace over white. Nothing remarkable--does well enough." She mentions the [John] Jays, who were "turned out of house and home."
