Summary
Samuel Joseph May writes William Lloyd Garrison, Samuel May, Jr., Wendell Phillips, and Roger Folger Wallcut informing them of the petitions before the New York State Legislature to pass a set of laws protecting fugitive slaves and punishing would-be "kidnappers". May admits that the petition is "hastily worded" and lacking in the "provisions we need", but states that the Chairman of the Special Committee is favorably inclined towards passage of the petition into law. May calls upon his friends to send forth to the Hon. Dudley P. Phelps the "best articles that have appeared" upon the legal rights of fugitive slaves, and notes that he has sent Lysander Spooner's "Defense for Fugitives" and "Trial by Jury"
