James Caleb Jackson writes to William Lloyd Garrison expressing his joy of finding himself enjoing the comforts of family and home, which he had "enjoyed but little" of in years prior. Nevertheless, Jackson belies a strange pride in insisting that were it not for his devotion to abolitionism he could be materially well-off, and implies that concern for worldly, material matters over spiritiual concerns is un-Christian. Jackson refutes charges leveled against him by William Goodell, stating that the views expressed have origin in the "Soc For Col" (American Colonization Society), which he charges as manifesting a "proslavery spirit" in the state of New York. Jackson closes by announcing his having been invited to tour and lecture in Western Massachusetts, an offer which he states he must decline on account of his poor health.
