Description Priscilla Townsend was Graceanna Lewis's close friend Mary Townsend's mother. She expresses affection for Graceanna Lewis but says she feels sorrow for the many things that oppress her. There is a note from Mary Townsend at the bottom saying that her mother has become ''increasingly attached'' to the abolitionists. The reverse of the letter is a fragment of a letter from Edwin Fussell to his wife, Rebecca Lewis Fussell.
