- Letter from Amos Augustus Phelps, Wrentham, [Mass.], to Clarissa Tryon, Oct 31, 1834
Amos A. Phelps writes to his mother, Clarissa Tryon, and informs her of his plans for the next month or two, as well as describing the convention he attended at Augusta, Maine. He says he made arrangements for winter for her. He then expresses his personal sentiments with regard to his present occupation. (“I never enjoyed more of the light of God’s countenance than now ... I wish to live to purpose, so that the world shall feel my influence, and be the better for my having lived in it.”) After this letter, Phelps’s wife, Charlotte, writes to her mother in law about her husband’s surprise visit and news about family and friends.
