Moore states that he heard that someone may have asked the editor not to publish anything relating to colleges and petition for charter, and he hopes that this is not true as he feels the public should have all the facts available. Moore also states that he is enclosing two dollars for the Hampden Journal to pay for a one year subscription and to credit towards their books. The enclosures noted in Moore's letter no longer accompany this item.
