Women, including from England, and a successful Bazaar, led by Maria Chapman

The Late Bazaar

Though desirous of occupying a considerable portion of this week’s Liberator with our own lucubrations, we  cheerfully yield up the larger portion of its inner form to the graphic description of the Faneuil Hall Bazaar  — its gifts, embellishments, arrangements, and  results  — from the pen of Mrs. M. W. Chapman, who always contrives to throw herself into the shade, but whose energy, industry, perseverance, and unwearied zeal, from the beginning to the end of the year, render tame the strongest expressions of eulogy.   Great praise is also due to the other self-sacrificing women, to whose combined benevolence and enterprise, on both sides of the Atlantic, the marked success of the Bazaar is due.  The emancipated slaves in the West Indies islands are incomparably more indebted to the women of England for their freedom, than to the men.  The slaves in this country will be equally indebted to woman, in the progress of their emancipation.
