Letter from Samuel Joseph May, Syracuse, [N.Y.], to William Lloyd Garrison, Aug[ust] 5. 1852
Samuel Joseph May writes William Lloyd Garrison that Jermain Loguen, "one of those under arrest" for his role in the Jerry Rescue, is "very anxious" to have access to the Liberator, but owing to his poor financial circumstances is unable to pay for a subscription. May requests that Garrison send Loguen a copy of the Liberator. May inquires if Garrison and Wendell Phillips will be joining them on October 1st for their "celebration of the Rescue of Jerry", and states that they are laboring to make it a grand occassion. May adds that he hopes to additionally see Garrison at the Women's Rights Convention. May wonders what the results of the Pittsburgh Convetnion will be, and adds his doubts as to whether or not the proposed platform will "be such as all political abolitionists may stand upon".
