This chapter describes the reception of the sisters' appearance before the Massachusetts Legislature as a fitting climax to their New England tour. They were hailed as both heroines and condemned as troublemakers. The sisters themselves, chafing under the barrage of hostile criticism, considered their speaking tour a duty which had turned out to be far more onerous than they had anticipated. Neither they nor Thomas Weld were in a position at that time to evaluate the results and the significance of the tour objectively. It was during this time that Weld and Angelina were to marry.
