A letter from S.M. Booth acknowledging Lewis Tappan's letter and providing suggestions of readings for the Africans at the upcoming meeting in New York. Booth suggests two readings: one from the Bible and one from a reader. He addresses the question of when a collection should be taken at the meeting, stating "If Kinna should make such an impression at New York as at Bloomfield it might be of some consequence to have him speak before the contribution is made." Booth mentions that he will travel to New York on Monday and asks if Tappan wishes to consult on the meeting's program. He writes that Tappan's letters have been delayed as they were sent to Farmington, Massachusetts, and not Farmington, Connecticut. Booth then adds that he hopes the will have the blessing of Heaven for the "exhibition of the capabilities & improvement of these representations of Africa."
