Deborah P. Palmer writes to Maria Weston Chapman in regards to the anti-slavery fair in Haverhill and thanks her for sending the "Liberty Bell." She writes about Mrs. William Hewes who is a "noble talented woman." They voted for some strong resolutions and voted unanimously to have them published in the Liberator but after the vote was taken, "the lady who we think rather lacking in zeal abolition, strongly objected to a certain portion of the resolutions being printed and as the Con[vention] broke up without anything distinct being done about it, I do not know whether they will be forwarded or not." Some were inclined to postpone or give up the anti-slavery fair entirely after the meeting, which "I think would be very detrimental to our cause as there has been considerable preparation for the occasion." She asks for her opinion on the matter. She sends the sum of money collected. She gives a tribute to Dr. C.T.C. Follen and asks, "Don't you rejoice over Mr. Fitch's return?"
