Deborah Weston has not started her journal yet. Tells of packing merchandise for the Millville anti-slavery fair. Mary G. Chapman "wanted to take me to see the Merry Wives of Windsor which Fanny [Kemble] was to read Sat. morning." S.H. Gay looked "very unhappy and miserable." She found S. May, Jr., correcting a report. William Lloyd Garrison told Deborah a very amusing account of a meeting of the Town & Country Club. Amos Bronson Alcott sold tickets for it and Ralph W. Emerson spoke. Garrison attacked Thomas Carlyle in a speech, which caused quite a controversy.
