This incomplete letter was perhaps written by Deborah Weston to an unknown person. Deborah describes a meeting at Marlborough Chapel. Walter Channing "made a dreadful foolish speech, not notoriously silly but silly to us. Amasa Walker was still more foolish. [Frederick?] Douglas made a most excellent speech on dissolution, advocating it." Anne W. Weston and Deborah Weston went off to hear Edward Parks address the ministers. "He harped entirely on Episcopacy." She describes the disturbance made by Mrs. Abigail Folsom, Wendell Phillips's admirable management of her, and his "glorious" speech.
