This letter is concerned with an engraving which Thomas Earle found hanging in a parlor. Earle therefore does not know if Mrs. Chapman would like to part with it, but he thinks it would do much good in Worcester, exhibited at anti-slavery meetings. He asks again whether it would be "perfectly satisfactory" for him to take it.
