Caroline Weston wants to stay in town over Sunday. Otherwise, she would return home on account of "Ma's ill turns." Caroline writes that "Garrison & Jackson are such fools that they have got Stanton & Leavitt with others to speak at the Faneuil Hall meeting which comes off Sunday night--no need of words." Caroline Weston called on Elizabeth Moorfield and her husband, "who is I think nephew to Judge Story" [no]. Finding that Caroline intended to go to "the trial," he offered to secure her a good place inside the bar.
"The trial" referred to in this letter, is presumably the trial of George Latimer, fugitive slave, which was to take place before Judge Story.
