Summary
George Jeffrey Tillotson writes to Amos A. Phelps informing him he has received a copy of Phelp's "Lectures on Slavery." Tillotson states he has not yet read the full book but agrees with Phelp's sentiments and that "the system of slavery ought to be out up 'root & branch' as soon as possible." However, Tillotson insists "light & love" are necessary to turn people against slavery and not the "violent & abusive speeches" by William Lloyd Garrison. Tillotson also defends his work with the local colonization society and criticizes abolitionists, like Garrison, who "let off so much steam of malignity against t[he] Col[onization] Soc[iety]." He then discusses visiting Boston in the spring and his thoughts about changing his "field of labor."
