  • Amos Farnsworth explains the parliamentary procedure involved in an incident at a meeting of the Boston Female Anti-Slavery Society. The Boston Female Anti-Slavery Society is apparently considering a move to dissolve itself and reorganize as a New Organization society. Farnsworth comments: "I am thunderstruck at the audacious villainy of the Executive Committee in selling the Emancipator to Leavitt." Farnsworth is not going to England. The Board of the Massachusetts Anti-Slavery Society attempted to dismiss William L. Chaplin. Christian union "is all the go here," while anti-slavery "is not thought of." Dudley Phelps may have "to take a walking ticket." Silas Hawley has been to Littleton, Westford, and Lowell in Massachusetts, where new societies will be formed. Mr. Lord from western New York has arrived; he is to "hold the ground that Hawley wrenches from the enemy." Farnsworth exclaims: "James Birney Pres. of the U.S.! I think if Loring or Garrison had been at the Convention no nomination would have been made."
