Summary
Charles Turner Torrey writes to Amos A. Phelps concerning a vote at his church "about sending the concert money to N. York." He then discusses the recent meeting of the Massachusetts Anti-Slavery Society and says that while "Garrison proclaims 'the question settled' but it can't stay settled and we must be prepared for 'war.'" He proposes writing a pamphlet explaining "at length the causes of alienation and strife" and asks Phelps if he would write it. Torrey also discusses being "the object of attack in the Lyingberator [Liberator], from week to week without the power of reply" but tells Phelps that if they "keep cool, we can fight the harder by & bye."
