Mary Anne Estlin informs Maria Weston Chapman that the contributions have already been sent in "for the next [Boston anti-slavery] Fair, some of them very pretty." Although it appears that stationery is the most useful donation, the ladies in Bristol also wish to send their work so "that our hands may be engaged in the same cause as yours." Frederick Douglass is expected at the end of March, and "we have disposed of upwards of 150 copies" of his narrative. Douglass is to stay at Mary A. Estlin's house during the first part of his visit and then with a Quaker gentleman. Referring to her father (John Bishop Estlin)'s reply "to the argumentative part of your letter," Mary A. Estlin assures Maria W. Chapman that "his sentiments coincide with your own in every essential point.
