Item Information

Extract of letter handwritten by unknown person. Whereabouts of original manuscript unknown.
David Lee Child's piece "Where are we," in the National Anti-Slavery Standard, has stirred up Abby Kelley. Anne Warren Weston does not think that she will "satisfy or enlighten Abby." A letter came from Child, "defending his course about [Lewis] Tappan." Anne went to the Southwicks to see Abby Kelley and found her "looking well as to beauty tho delicate as to health." Abby Kelley was pleased with the Liberty Party meeting in Buffalo, where she spoke on behalf of the American Anti-Slavery Society. But the "New Org's from the East, [Henry B.] Stanton & the rest, felt very bad about her speaking and hated her. Abby thinks that multitudes of good honest folks from Ohio & New York were present who really thought the American Society a Non Resistant Soc. and that she was enabled to undeceive them." Miss Kelley admires William A. White.
