Summary
Charles Turner Torrey writes to Amos A. Phelps challenging him to answer "In one word ... why the Am[erican]. A[nti] S[lavery] Society ceased to support Hiram Wilson & the schools among the runaways in Canada?" He then discusses the difficulty Wilson has had raising funds to support the school. Torrey writes about making a proposition at the upcoming meeting to "refer the whole controversy to a large committee, from both parties in equal numbers, with instructions to report, if possible, some measure of conciliation." He writes about his plan for the meeting and closes the letter by asking Phelps, "What say you brother plotter?" In the postscript, Torrey asks Phelps to "take a little notice" of his wife's eldest brother, who has just arrived in Boston, and introduce him to "good young men."
