Reverend Edward Royall (E.R.) Tyler writes to Amos A. Phelps presenting statistics on the numbers of Baptist abolitionists and opposers in the state of Connecticut. He writes that "the Baptists are much fewer in number in this state than the Congregationalists, they having only about 11 ministers + we about 190" but concludes a list of the Baptists and their respective towns.
