Thomas Parnell Beach writes to Maria Weston Chapman in regards to appreciating her "affectionate notice" of his condition. He believes that what has been done for the slave "is the result of independent individual exertion, combining & harmonising in their operation," and that organisation has been a hindrance to moral enterprises. He gives examples. Science is in less danger from organisation, but the "work of ages in morals...has got to be done over again." He elaborates on this thought. He asks Maria "why place friend A.M. Quimby's remarks under "Refuge & Oppression" & there leave them?" He discusses the importance of the ideas contained in these remarks. He is glad to see her initials under many articles in the Liberator, and wishes all papers in the land were under the influence of woman. His wife "feels deeply afflicted at my sepulchral life, which the church have awarded me for a time."
