Abolitionist Harriet Beecher Stowe wrote this letter to educator and reformer Horace Mann on the day she finished her famous anti-slavery novel, Uncle Tom's Cabin. She described the book as "a despairing appeal to civilized humanity," written with her "hearts blood," and thanked Mann for his support and suggestions.
