Summary
Samuel Joseph May writes William Lloyd Garrison informing him that his letter will be borne to Garrison by Peter Still, a man "late by out of the jaws of slavery", whose tale May surmises may have already been conveyed to Garrison by James Miller M'Kim. May informs Garrison that the slaveholding "tyrant" in possession of Still's wife and children has demanded the sum of $5000 in exchange for their sale, which May calculates at being $1500-2000 above their market value. May states that the excess valuation is retaliation to what he sarcastically labels the "very unnatural and wicked attempt" of Still's family to "take their own freedom". May appraises Garrison of his intention to provide Still with letters of introduction to the wealthy and influential of Boston in hopes of securing the publicity and funds necessary to obtain liberty for Still's remaining family. May informs Garrison that he has sent forth his discourse on Daniel Webster to Horace Greeley for publication in the Tribune, and states that he has instructed Greeley to forward the manuscript to Garrison for publication in the Liberator should Greeley decide to not publish it in the Tribune
