Letter from Anne Warren Weston, Weymouth, [Mass.], to Maria Weston Chapman, April 2, 1849
View Full Text
Holograph, signed with initials. Anne Warren Weston reacts to the proposition of holding the next fair in Philadelphia. She said: "We do not think it will do at all." She dreads the possibility of being ill while visiting in Philadelphia. "There is...no market in Phil." The fair is to be held in Boston, but not in Faneuil Hall. Anne will see if a new dance hall at the corner of Summer Street can be obtained. Maria W. Chapman is to stir up English friends to give (to the cause). If there is to be a Liberty Bell, Edmund (Quincy) would undertake it joyfully. "It is not that I could not get through it did I make the Cause my first object, but I design that the comfort, health, wealth & respectability of the Weston family should be that..." She deplore's Lizzy's [Elizabeth B. Chapman] illness. Anne tells of her mother's discomfort at having a "French or German" maid brought by Hervey. She tells of the sailing plans of Mr. (Joshua) Bates.
