Summary
Charles Turner Torrey writes to Amos A. Phelps describing "a good old fashioned A[nti]. S[lavery]. meeting" held in Pittsfield the day before where he gave a lecture. Torrey also tells Phelps about "some wild youths, a few of them southerners" who made disturbances in the town, including "demolishing in part the steps of the shop of a prominent abolitionist and the steps of the Baptist Church in which the meetings were held." Torrey also says the youths showed "love for the cause of - scoundrelism, in a new form - by throwing cents at me as I stood in the pulpit," to which Torrey "thanked the hopeful youth for the contribution." He adds that he "would willingly be pelted till doomsday by money for the cause of the poor." He closes the letter by telling Phelps his travel plans for the week and in the postscript he discusses the quantities of books he has ordered
