Summary
Charles Turner Torrey writes to Amos A. Phelps granting his approval for the proposed pamphelt, stating "the arrangement is just the thing I could desire," and giving instructions to Phelps for it to be "carefully reviewed & revised by different hands before publication." He then refutes an interpretation of his comments made by [John A.] Collins and repeats a story he heard about [Henry B.] Stanton's speech in Haverhill, remarking "But I do not believe a word of the story." Torrey also discusses the upcoming New England [Anti-Slavery] Convention in June and asks Phelps which towns in Essex County Foote has "explored for subscribers" to their new paper
