Summary
Pillsbury describes the state of his health. He gives a thorough account of the anniversary meeting of the British and Foreign Anti-Slavery Society, which was apparently unsuccessful. He tells May that no mention of the American Anti-Slavery Society was made by either the British or the American speakers and that he disapproved strongly of the whole proceeding. Pillsbury says that the British and Foreign Anti-Slavery Society is the only real obstacle to the spread of abolitionism in England. He mentions that he briefly saw the Chapman family and the Weston family and that he received a visit from Mrs. Massie. He informs May that he has "just had the pleasure of aiding in the escape of a slave from Charleston, S.C."
