Oliver Johnson, the recording secretary of the American Anti-Slavery Society, writes to William Lloyd Garrison "to communicate, through you, to the Board of Managers of the Massachusetts A[nti] S[lavery] Society" a resolution passed by the A.A.S.S. to seek "whether arrangements can be made for the employment of agents in that state for the winter ... [and if the] Board will send a part of their stock of anti-slavery publications to our Depository." Johnson then explains the views of the Executive Committee of the American Anti-Slavery Society, asserting that, "in relation to agents, if the right man can be procured ... all will agree that the more [agents] we have in the field, the better." He tells Garrison that the organization wants to "meet our responsibilities boldly, and with an unfaltering spirit," and send out as many lecturers as possible, citing New Hampshire as a successful model. He also asks Garrison "on what terms will" the Board of Managers of the Massachusetts Anti-Slavery Society send some of their publications to the organization's depository in New York.
