Summary
George Jeffrey Tillotson writes to Amos A. Phelps about the growth of his church, stating, "My house of worship is full to overflowing." Tillotson also tells Phelps about classmates from college and the seminary settling around him, saying that "I have no less than about 9 college and sem[inar]y acquaintances within 12 or 20 miles of me." He shares news about these and other friends and encourages Phelps not to leave his congregation in Hopkinton during "this impor[tan]t crisis."
