Death of Charles T. Torrey

May 15, 1846

A letter signed, “A Baltimorean”, notes the death of Torrey, in the penitentiary hospital, and this becomes a call to the people of Massachusetts to “come out of the Union, and all the north will follow”.   A note appended by the editor indicates that a funeral for Torrey will be held at Park St. Church, on the next Monday.
