Rate this:
Grace Denning Williams writes to Maria Weston Chapman in regards to the lack of anti-slavery zeal in her neighborhood. She writes, "Anti-slavery principles here have a Name to live and are dead. There are a few females here and a few of the other sex who are genuine abolitionists but we are powerless but in our individual capacity." She speaks of her experience last summer with a Virginian visitor and on a slaveholder's residence. Her hosts believed her to be different from Garrison but she admitted that she was a Garrisonian. She had an abolitionist stay at her house and she criticizes his "noisy declamation." She writes that she may contribute to the lady's anti-slavery fair. She speaks of her visit to New York last spring with a "respectable black family" and was "charmed with their unsophistocated love...when met at equals." She writes of her experiences at a funeral procession for African Americans and praises their gratitude.
