While she was editor of the National Anti-Slavery Standard, Child wrote a weekly column for the paper called "Letters from New-York," which she later compiled and published in book form in two separately-published volumes. Child's management as editor and the popularity of her "Letters from New-York" column both helped to establish the National Anti-Slavery Standard as one of the most popular abolitionist newspapers in the US.

The second of two separately-published volumes of Child's writings first published as a series of columns in The National Anti-Slavery Standard between 1841 and 1843, though some here published for the first time.
