Copy of letter from Amos Augustus Phelps, Boston, to Samuel Joseph May, Oct 17. 1837
Amos A. Phelps replies to Samuel J. May’s letters about Bridgewater. He then comments on the connection between the Liberator and the Massachusetts Anti-Slavery society, a topic May mentioned in his letter. Phelps says that no such connection should be continued, given the kind of editor Garrison is, and that this is the position share by the Board of Managers of the society. He then talks about sectarianism among the abolitionists and Garrison’s aggressive approach.
