Letter from George Jeffrey Tillotson, Brooklyn, [Conn.], to Amos Augustus Phelps, 1842 Sept[ember] 5th
George Jeffrey Tillotson writes to Amos A. Phelps "with 2 objects in view." First, he informs Phelps about his desire to purchase more shares in Boston banks and asks him to borrow money from a friend to help with the purchase. Second, he tells Phelps about a notice for an upcoming annual meeting of the Windham County Foreign Missionary Society that was sent to the religious newspapers "Puritan" and "Recorder" but misstated the date of the meeting. He asks Phelps if he would check in to their offices and make sure the mistake is corrected.
