Samuel May, Jr., is sending this letter by way of Caroline Weston's brother, Warren Weston, who is taking passage in the steamship tomorrow. Wendell Phillips, who was very ill and near death, is now recovering very slowly and steadily. William Lloyd Garrison is much invigorated by the water treatment. Samuel May tells of the Weymouth annual anti-slavery tea party. The New Bedford Convention was excellent: "Lucy Stone did remarkably well, and very much interested the N.B. [New Bedford] folks. She is doing, directly & indirectly, a very good work." John Bailey is moving to Lynn, as "N. Bedford seeks to starve & freeze his anti slavery fidelity out of him." Samuel May describes the election excitement: "The Free Soil party have made a very vigorous effort; but they are no match for the Talorites in lying, ..." Mrs. Follen told Samuel May that she will go abroad with her son next summer. Samuel May reminisces about his pleasurable trip to Paris in October 1843.
