Well Mr. May,
I am really at my own Farm Home, all nestled down in a blessed quiet— And as I live over the experiences of the past six months, I can but acknowledge to myself— that Anti Slavery has made me richer & braver in spirit— & that it is the school of schools for the full & true developement of the nobler elements of life—
I find my Raspberry field looking finely— also my Strawberry bed— The prospect for Peaches, cherries, plums—apples & pears is very promising—
Indeed all nature is clothed in her most hopeful dress— It really seems to me the trees and the grass & the large fields of waving grain did never look so beautifully as now— It is more probable however, that my soul has grown to appreciate Nature more fully, than that she has taken to herself new charms—
I have just received a note from Lucy Stone
, relative to the place
of holding our next Woman's Rights Con.[2
] She names Worcester, Providence & Newark— It seems to me Boston
is a better place than either of those— My mind, as to that National Con. is to turn
over to Anniversary Week, in N. York— & just have one day
— merely to bear our testimony on the question— When you write, please say what is your judgement as to place for this Fall— Yours Truly
Susan B. Anthony
