Silas Hawley writes to William Lloyd Garrison with regret that he will not be able to attend an antislavery meeting. He tries to encourage Garrison in his conflict with the Massachusetts Abolition Society, comparing the Massachusetts Anti-Slavery Society to "a gallant ship ... [with] good officers - good crew. She is storm-proof, She has outrode the Colonization storm, the American Union storm, and the Clerical Appeal storm, and she will stand the present and the last, without loss." Hawley says he can best serve the cause by continuing to lecture and offers his services to the Society. He passes to Garrison "best respects" from "Smith," who also says the American Anti-Slavery Society "will go stronger next Spring for the women, than they did the last." Hawley then mentions the leaders of Massachusetts Abolition Society telling Garrison, "Smith says [Charles Turner] Torrey is a week fellow - and [Alanson] St. Clair a saucy brawler, and that [Amos Augustus] Phelps has fallen & [Elizur] Wright [is] out of his place."
