Richard Davis Webb's son Richard came home today from his travels. He was "full of acknowledgment of all the attention & hospitality he met with from my American friends." Richard met Frederick Douglass in Rochester. Douglass said "he hoped I would not bear spite or to that affect. He referred I suppose to a furious attack upon me which he published in his paper in consequence of that unfortunate statement respecting Julia Griffiths which H.C.W. [Henry C. Wright] sent me but which could not be substantiated." Frederick Douglass told Richard that he intended giving up his paper. Richard spent a night at at S. Foster's house, and was greatly pleased with Abby Kelley Foster. Richard D. Webb discusses the question of Garrison coming to England. He doubts whether "he is as likely to make an impression on the British public as a much less remarkable man." He regrets that his son Richard did not see Deborah Weston, of whom Sarah Remond spoke so highly. Richard D. Webb was greatly charmed by Samuel J. May.
