<p style='text-align: justify;'> Letter from Chauncy Hare Townshend to Mary Anne Rawson, with his 'Sonnet. On the Present crisis of affairs, as regards the Emancipation of Negroes'; some variation between manuscript and published version; Townshend also offered a variant line for line 10, which he said in his letter 'some persons might object ... as too severe upon those who are for half & half measures ... Simply considering the line, as it stands at present, as an expression of my own opinions & feelings, & also viewing it as poetry, I must say that I prefer letting it remain as it is'. </p>
