Summary
Samuel Joseph May informs William Lloyd Garrison that E. W. Reynolds is presently found at Nantucket, where he is tending to the Unitarian Church there while he takes rest and recreation to improve his health. May praises Reynolds's character, describing him as a "profound thinker" and an "impressive speaker", and writes that he will remain on Nantucket through the 16th of August. May opines to Garrison that Reynolds should be brought to Boston to deliver several sermons, and requests that Garrison advise the Committee to engage Reynolds to preach in Boston prior to his return to his home in New York. May writes that he found much excitment by the "reports of wrong and outrage with which N. York City was there filled", and adds that "[t]hreats of violence were rife in the streets". May informs Garrison that Gerrit Smith had delivered a lecture on the Rebellion, and adds that both he and Smith "cling to the hope" of receiving a visit from the Garrisons
