Anti-Slavery Social Party

December 1, 1854

A letter to Garrison, from W. H. Fish, no address given, (Worcester area assumed) tells of a social gathering of abolitionists in Blackstone, an Anti-Slavery Social Party.  The party originated with “a very few anti-slavery ladies… who carried it through it through in a spirit and manner highly creditable to their interest  and zeal in the cause.”  Tappan, Higginson,  Stephen Foster spoke, and seventy-five dollars above expenses was raised.
