Letter to George W. Warren, [1877?] March 15.

Mrs. Richards thanks Warren for his history of the Bunker Hill Monument Association and corrects two "mistakes" at length. She points out that a fair in 1833 to benefit the Perkins Asylum for the Blind raised $11,400 in one week, and that she conducted the "Post Office" at the 1840 Bunker Hill Fair, but not as editor of the "Transcript" a position she did not obtain until after her brother's 1842 death. She suggests Warred had confused the "fairy houses" table at the Blind Fair with the "Post Office" table at the Bunker Hill Fair and gives several anecdotes of the latter mentioning Dr. J.C. Warren, Amos Lawrence and a concurrent "Tippecanoe and Tyler Too" convention.
