Amos Farnsworth regretfully declines an invitation from Anne Warren Weston to come to Weymouth and attend a meeting of the Norfolk Anti-Slavery Society. Farnsworth is arranging for an absence from home of two or three weeks and so cannot go to Weymouth on the eve of his departure. He rejoices in Mr. John A. Collins's safe arrival. Farnsworth writes: "I expected Wendell [Phillips] to come home the same man---he has too much sense to be otherwise. It is your fools that swell & strut on their return from abroad." Farnsworth gives news of Groton clerical affairs, especially pertaining to Mr. Silas Hawley.
