Letter from S. Alfred Steinthal, Bridgewater, [England], to Samuel May, March 28th, 1855
Steinthal expresses great pleasure at the opposition to Judge Edward Greely Loring. He discusses the predicament of those who vote under the Constitution of the United States and favor the abolition of slavery. Steinthal says that he is now inclined to be more lenient in judging George Thompson's conduct at the London Conference of the British and Foreign Anti-Slavery Society. He defends the New Broad Street Committee and Louis Alexis Chamerovzow and advises keeping an abolitionist agent in England. Steinthal says that Parker Pillsbury has done a lot of good, but is not fitted to be the English agent for the cause. He describes Chamerovzow and tells of seeing the Estlin family, William James, and George Armstrong. He tells May that he has corresponded with Lajos Kossuth about his American trip.
