Letter from Charles Wheeler Denison, Stonington, [Conn.], to William Lloyd Garrison, March 7, 1834
Charles Wheeler Denison has organized anti-slavery societies in Middletown and Hartford. Denison came to Stonington to attend his brother's funeral. A mob followed Denison to Middletown and tried to prevent the organization of the anti-slavery society. He wishes that Samuel Joseph May could come to Middletown and "be the David of the sacramental host." No copies of the Liberator have reached Stonington. Denison says in the postscript: "If you have any valuable pamphlets that I could use in my Agency, I would willingly pay the price and postage of such as you might send me, with the papers, to this place."
