Thomas G. Richmond writes to Anne Warren Weston in regards to his appreciation for the opportunity to do something for the slave. He says he was in Washington recently. He gives a dialogue of the slave markets, He attacks the slave trade in the District of Columbia. He writes, "Gov[ernor] MacDuffie...lifts a warning voice-& verifies his late message if congress abolishes slavery in the District of Columbia, South Carolina, together with the other slave holding states, will consider themselves absolved from all constitutional jurisdiction, will consequently secede from the Union." He thinks the abolition of slavery would prevent the dissolution of the Union by removing the "cause of contention." He writes of a woman who aids in his anti-slavery work.
