This letter is signed "Addie"; the surname is unknown. Addie wants to know what Anne W. Weston's sisters think of Louis Napoleon. Her own sister went on a visit to Georgetown, D.C. She marvels at the patient and skillful work required to run an Anti-Slavery Bazaar. "I was surprised that you did not ascribe more direct results,--'material aid,'--to the influence of Uncle Tom's Cabin." She admits the book "had no effect on my purse strings." She does not think much about slavery, "except when the matter is... especially brought up." A friend of hers think that the whites are more enslaved by the blacks than the blacks are by the whites. "I like the Colonization Scheme very well." She asks Anne's opinion of Episcopacy. She thinks she is living in a time of great events.
Includes envelope, with the delivery address: "Miss Anne Warren Weston, Weymouth, Mass."
