Place of origin:
Lucretia Mott refers to her experience of crossing the Atlantic to attend the so-called World Convention, which proved to only a conference of the British & Foreign Anti-Slavery Society, whose Committee of Arrangements ruled out the attendance of women as delegates. In vain, Lucretia Mott, Anne Knight, and Elizabeth Pease attempted to hold a public meeting for women; they gave up in despair. The acclaim with which Lucretia Mott was received at her public appearances in Birmingham and Dublin furnnished "proof that the objection to our admission were all hollow." Lucretia Mott defends her conduct in answer to Abby Kelley [Foster]'s question if she has "sacrificed principle at the altar of Peace." She admires the stance of Wendell and Ann Phillips in the matter of women's representation.
