Summary
In this letter to Amos A. Phelps, Charles Turner Torrey writes about placing "all the agents you send into the County under our direction; all their collections of money to be paid into one Country Treasury." He also pledges "at least one thousand dollars in addition into your Treasury," assuring Phelps "why we cannot make the pledge larger or more absolute now is that we do not yet know our own strength." Torrey signs the letter, "Chas T. Torrey, (Chairman)" before writing Phelps a more personal letter on the following page, in which he tells Phelps that they need more agents and describes the instructions he has given to their agent, Epaphras Goodman. He then mentions that the Lynn Record has refused to publish "our Constitution" and asks Phelps when the regular meetings of the Essex County society will be held
