E.M. Davis writes to William Lloyd Garrison informing him that the "articles for Professor [William] Adam were delivered to him" and he "had the pleasure of a personal interview with him" while Davis was in England. He reports that William Dawes and John Keep returned to the United States in the same ship he did, "the British Queen," and many abolitionist lectures were given on the ship. Davis says, "We had a pretty hot abolition furnance on board and more than one had their pro-slavery fingers burned." He then tells Garrison that his society is holding its semi annual meeting in Philadelphia and asks if a number of Massachusetts abolitionists can attend, including Wendell Phillips, Ellis Gray Loring, Maria Weston Chapman, and Henry Grafton Chapman. He also invites Garrison to the meeting, telling him that "If you cannot come, as I know your spirit will be with us, let it be clothed in words." Davis asks Garrison to stop sending him the Liberator in New York and what is the amount of his debt for the paper.
