A letter from Amos Townsend which includes a bill of his expenses paid during the trial [United States v. Amistad or Amos Townsend v. Stanton Pendleton?]. His letter and states that Lewis Tappan has a bill for money paid to Sherman M. Booth. He explains that Amos Townsend believes Tappan misunderstood James Covey as having a place to live. Covey would be glad for a place for a few months and then return to Sierra Leone. Townsend has not secured a place and asks if Tappan can "do anything for him in New York" or in Farmington. Norton has sent newspapers relating "the public feeling here in regard to our late proceedings" and states that sentiment in New Haven is "right in the minds of all whose opinion is worth anything" and that great good will be done by "the notoriety which Pendleton & his [illegible] have given to the affair." Norton asks that Tappan send some of the portraits prepared by John Sartain.
