Anne Warren Weston was so shocked by Judge Jay's letter of withdrawal from the American Anti-Slavery Society that she is not going to send him a circular, but will send one to his son. Mrs. Wendell Phillips is much better. Anne went to a service at St. Paul's Church where four bishops presided. She attended a meeting of the Board of Missions afterward. She tells what the Board members said about abolition. She supplies some family news and information about her friends; the Clevelands, Mrs. Maria Mack, Henry I. Bowditch, and David Lee Child. She tells of an interview between Mrs. Grafton and President Tyler. Also mentions the death of Mr. Cleveland.
