Here is an announcement of an evening Soiree to be held on January 25th, in Boston.  It urges women to attend because 1860 is going to be good year.  It exudes a “present hopeful crisis” and then, “…never were the signs of the peaceful extinction of slavery so full and propitious….”  The notice is signed by Maria Weston Chapman, L. Maria Child, Anne Weston, Helen Eliza Garrison,  Sarah P. Remond, and others among leaders of the female abolition societies.   (Liberator, January 6, 1860)
