- Copy of a letter from Samuel May, [Leicester, Mass], [July 8, 1851]
May wishes to publish a column in "The Christian Register" in response to a personal attack made upon him in a previous issue. May then reports that there were two versions of "The Christian Register" issued on the same day, one that contained an article by Reverend John Parkman and another that lacked it. The issue containing the article was sent to subscribers living outside of Boston, while the other was sent only to Boston subscribers. The article dealt with Thomas Sims, a fugitive slave. May claims that an influential Boston Unitarian had the article removed from the paper.
