When Wendell Phillips speaks in the State House, Deborah Weston will go in town to hear him. Deborah Weston writes about arrangements for when Maria Weston Chapman comes to Weymouth. The worst snow storm of the season came off yesterday. Deborah writes that "Ma was quite encouraged about Mary [Gray Chapman] when she heard she was able to take charge of the household." In a postcript, Deborah says that a book has been sent to Maria W. Chapman by [Charles] Sumner. Deborah said: "To see Sumner in the committee of Foreign Affairs where Mason lorded it, is a sight. ...Mason walks about like a caged tiger." She mentions a pamphlet by David Lee Child and Lydia Maria Child.
