Lucretia Mott was a prominent Philadelphia Quaker and a leader in reform movements, especially antislavery, education, peace, and women's rights. In this letter, Mott tells Graceanna Lewis, a Quaker abolitionist and ornithologist, about antislavery meetings she has committed to attend.

Excerpt

“All of my meetings are antislavery meetings, and I trust they will be while we hold millions of our fellow beings in abject bondage” (p. 2).
