Summary
Charles Turner Torrey writes to Amos A. Phelps about establishing a new newspaper as the official organ of the Massachusetts Anti-Slavery Society. He proposes questions Phelps should send out to abolitionists across the state to test the prospects for this new paper. He also comments that the idea is growing in Andover and "that some of the warmest Garrisonites in Andover are now in favor of it." Torrey also discusses politics and the recent elections, stating in the postscript, stating the Whigs "are now making ridicule of our whole movement to cover up their own want of principle."
