Quantity: 1 available


Dated Dec. 15, '61, to "Dear Conway", discussing the best way to fund an un-named anti-slavery project - "...no help yet can come from Jackson's legacy - we shall not get the money for two or more months. But the Hovey Comee (Committee) have funds & I'll apply there." He then gives "...hearty congratulations on your success with audiences...". Phillips's correspondent is likely fellow abolitionist Moncure Conway - they wrote frequently during this period, and Conway lectured to anti-slavery audiences. Francis Jackson (1789-1861) left money in trust for anti-slavery causes; Charles Fox Hovey (1807-1859) left money in the control of a "Hovey Committee", of which Phillips was a member. Two conjugate leaves, four pp., folded for mailing, an inch of mounting tape on the top edge. Paper a little toned, else Fine.
