Summary
Charles Turner Torrey writes to Amos A. Phelps to put him "in possession of some few facts as to the present state of things" in Andover, Massachusetts. He describes the people in the town as "joined to their idols, apathy and colonization" and then moves on to discuss "the Seminary and academics." He tells Phelps "there is a considerable degree of seriousness in the Academies," and passes along a request from "our friends ... that all the exercises of the comng week be of a serious religious character." Torrey mentions that more students are now supporting his efforts and professors are discouraging their conflict with the colonization society
