Summary
Samuel Joseph May notifies William Lloyd Garrison that they held "a large and an enthusiastic meeting" the previous evening, and states that the proceedings will be published in the local newspapers, which May will take care to forward to Garrison. May reports that the meeting was commenced with the tolling of a bell every half-minute until they "had tolled the age of Capt. John Brown". May relates that the tone of most of the speakers was "altogether too warlike", and proposes that the North ought to "be kind and generous" whilst "making explicit their determination to see Slavery utterly abolished throughout the land". May expresses his concern regarding the state of the American Anti-Slavery Society's "English agency", and declares his wish that the Executive Committee would appoint William Craft or George Thompson as their salaried agents. May writes that, in regards to the project to send anti-slavery books to "various localities" in the British Isles, there exists a "great want of information respecting American Slavery" in these lands. May concludes by providing Garrison with a list of recommended works to include in these collections
