Summary

Frothingham declines an invitation to speak at the anniversary meeting of the American Anti-Slavery Society. He objects to the lack of education and originality of the abolitionist speakers and does not wish to be associated with them. Frothingham also expresses doubt for the value of conventions, which he feels have been superseded by newspapers.
