Title:
Copy of a letter from Samuel May, Jr., Lecester, to Caleb Stetson, Sept. 8, [18]54
Description:
Samuel May Jr. informs Caleb Stetson that two agents of the Massachusetts Anti-Slavery Society, [Messing N.H.] Whiting and Lewis Ford, have been assigned to several antislavery meetings in Plymouth County, including one in South Scituate. May wants to ensure that Stetson does not perceive this as a sign of the Society’s lack of confidence in Stetson; he explains that they want to be inclusive. He asks for Stetson’s help publicizing the meeting.
