Letter from George Thompson, Boston, [Mass.], to Anne Warren Weston, Thursday Morning, [14 Nov. 1850]
View Full Text
Holograph, signed. While George Thompson is writing this letter, William Lloyd Garrison is penning an answer to a silly paragraph about Thompson that was in the Transcript. He discusses the book Emma, by Jane Austen. He repeats an anecdote about a party at a Boston house where the colored waiters vanished at the appearance of "the Godlike" [presumably a reference to Daniel Webster]. Thompson is "distressingly nervous" over his speech in Faneuil Hall tomorrow.
