Content: Rev. Daniel Wise writes to William Lloyd Garrison. "This ancient and honored town, after a long and deep slumber on the absorbing question of abolition, has at length awaked. A few weeks since, the REv. Alanson St. Clair delivered a course of lectures, with the happiest effect at our Town Hall. During his lectures, a constitution was kept in diligent circulation, and at their close the signers organized themselves into a Society." 70 members
