Holograph, signed with initials.
Anne Warren Weston says that a "capital meeting" was held in the Universalist house, with Frederick Douglass, Charles L. Remond, and Cyrus Pitt Grosvenor speaking. Anne spent the morning with Mrs. Grace Emerson, and called in the afternoon on Susan Taber, who she liked very much. "Their love for you knows no bounds." There was talk about work for the fair, and things that will be sent to Boston. Anne was delighted with I. Shaw. On Sunday, good anti-slavery meetings were held in the Town Hall all day. In the evening, "there has been a glorious meeting. Douglas[s] and Remond never did better." She comments on Mr. and Mrs. Beane in relation to abolition.
On verso, the delivery address is: "Miss Caroline Weston, 39 Summer St., Boston." Written below the address, is: "Mr. Beane."
