Esther Moore writes to Maria Weston Chapman in regards to her path is solitary as her family connections are sectarian and opposed to "modern abolition movements." She exhorts Maria to continue in her valiant fight for the cause. Mrs. Susan (Cox) Luther has "been divers times dragg'd out of the meeting houses sometimes with rough and merciless hands, cast into the street for speaking what I thought the truth." She quotes extensively from a written statement by Mrs. Luther of her sentiments in regard to freedom of expression of religious conviction. She was disappointed to find in the noticed of the Pennsylvania convention of the Eastern district that the Philadelphia riots were accorded last appropation than they deserved, except Robert Purvis. She seldom sees Lucretia Mott who is one of the most popular public speakers. She wants her to be more "ultra" in carrying out her non-resisting principles at home. There is a great persecution movement in the Cherry street meeting of which Lucretia Mott is a member. She hopes that "brother Stephen [Symonds Foster]" will not die "by such savage cruelty too." It is "passing strange" that the descendants of George Fox should be "some of the prime actors in the Tragedy."
