In this letter to Samuel May, Parker Pillsbury discusses his upcoming trip to Ohio. He tells May that since he will be leaving in a few days he will not attend the meeting at Worcester the following day, in order "to save my strength as much as possible." Pillsbury adds, "If half the speakers announced in the Liberator attend, I should only be in the way." He then says that abolitionists in Ohio "promise pretty well not to drive me too hard, and the Bill of appointments does look rather merciful." Still, he "dread[s] the journey out as much as anything." He reports that they had "a pretty good meeting at Andover" and that he managed to deliver a lecture even though he suffered from "a most unmerciful headache all day." Pillsbury predicts the weather will be favorable for a meeting tomorrow, and regrets not going, but says, "with Ohio on the one hand, and an aching brain on the other, and over all, and around all, the not unreasonable complainings of my family, that I am so little at home, it is not always easy to decide what to do."
