Sophia Davenport writes to Anne Warren Weston in regards to describing her situation as governess in the home of Mrs. Ashley. She writes, "They have great respect for the character and habits of New England people." Dr. Moss, Mrs. Ashley's father, said of John Quincy Adams that "he was one of the greatest and the very best man in the whole country." Although General Ashley in his will desired his slaves to be set free, his sisters consent only to the emancipation of one man. She thinks the people here are aware of the wrong of slavery, "but the giving up of one's property for the sake of one's soul is too great a sacrifice."
