Joseph Congdon writes to Deborah Weston in regards to thanking her for sending a copy of "Right and Wrong" and his delight in reading it. He writes, "I admire this little work not only for its noble advocacy of great and important principles, but for the beautiful manner in which its author spirtualizes common events." He writes of being "very much startled" at the hearing of the Alton tragedy, in which Elijah Parish Lovejoy, an abolitionist and newspaper editor was killed during a pro-slavery mob in Alton, Illinois on November 7, 1837. He asks, "are you sound in Boston?-I want to know if there is anything in that Robinson business which giving a different appearance to it from the newspaper colorings-It would seem from what they tell us, that the abduction of the child was not a very commendable engagement-I have never conducted clearly their plea for doing so." He has heard of her successful sales last week.
