Holograph, signed.
Mrs. Eunice Messenger Collins writes this letter for her husband, John A. Collins, who has been prevented from writing because of an inflammation and pain in his side. He is oliged to keep perfectly quiet and has not spoken in public for two weeks. Eunice Collins remarks on the "assault made upon Mr. Collins by Remond & Douglass in a public meeting in this place. It was most ungenerous inducing the people to believe him false to the trust reposed in him by the Mass. friends, so far however as the friends here are concerned they have failed in their object." The incident has confirmed Mr. Collins in the opinion that "he cannot longer continue in the agency."
