Letter from Richard Davis Webb, Dublin, to Samuel May, 21st December, 1855
Webb gives instructions concerning the subscriptions of William Shortt and Joseph Lupton to "The Standard" and "The Liberator" and cancels his order for the set of Thomas De Quincey's works. Webb defends his article on Gerrit Smith and comments on the book by Frederick Douglass, "My Bondage and My Freedom." He tells May that he read in "The New York Herald" that Joseph Barker had died. He discusses Barker and Stephen S. Foster, and the health of Francis Jackson.
