Summary
Pillsbury says he had intended to return to America in October but that "there are some reasons for remaining that have recently appeared, of a rather serious character." He tells May that Julia Griffiths is planning to publish an edition of Frederick Douglass' new book, with an introduction by Reverend [Alexander] Campbell and that "The Empire" has given the book a favorable advance notice. He exclaims that "The Empire" also says that "the Carolina slave is far better off than the poor of Britain." Pillsbury reports that the British and Foreign Anti-Slavery Society is helping the Rochester Anti-Slavery Bazaar and gives an account of the financial difficulties of the Society, which tried to exclude the American Anti-Slavery Society from its affiliates, but was unsuccessful. Mentions the resignation of Reverend William Stokes. He states that the Crimean War diverts attention from the abolition cause. Pillsbury tells May that he doubts if he will return soon. He says "The Anti-Slavery Advocate" is too remotely located and does not have the readers it deserves. Pillsbury complains of his continued suffering of headaches
