Summary
Letter #1: The board of managers of the Massachusetts Anti-Slavery Society requests the Standing Committee of the Park Street Church to allow them to use the Park Street Meeting House to commemorate the recent death of E.P. Lovejoy of Alton, Ill., by mob. A note after the letter says the committee responded that they could not get a meeting in season to act on it, and that Salem Street Church declined a similar request. Letter #2: A. A. Phelps writes to W. S. Porter to express his objection to the fact that only those who are in favor of the new organization is allowed to take part in the proceedings of its convention. He says he ́shall make all the opposition in [his] poweŕ against an organization that ́got up after this manner.́ Letter #3: W. S. Porter replies to A. A. Phelps and explains his point of view on the matter. Letter #4: J. Gulliver writes to A. A. Phelps that there is a disposition to arrange matters so that ́the question of the expediency of a new organization shall be settled by the convention,́ and that this will ́open the door for all abolitionists to come in.́
