Summary
Samuel Joseph May informs William Lloyd Garrison that the Jerry Rescue Committee has unanimously voted to celebrate the rescue on September 30, provided that the American Anti-Slavery Society "would give way for that purpose". May writes that he has taken the liberty of answering the committee to inform them that the American Anti-Slavery Society would "be very happy" to set aside the "forenoon and afternoon of Saturday to the celebration" so as to ensure that Garrison and others at the anti-slavery meeting would be able to join them. May recounts the tentative schedule for the weekend's speakers, and informs Garrison that if he proposes Yerrinton serve as the meeting's reporter, then they would be pleased to engage him for the Jerry Rescue Celebration as well. May reports that yesterday saw them lay the cornerstone of the "N.Y. State Asylum for Idiots"
