Imprisonment of Charles T. Torrey

August 23, 1844

A letter from the Glasgow Emancipation Society,  offering sympathy for Torrey, who has been arrested and imprisoned in Baltimore for assisting slaves to escape from their masters in Virgina, and who is charged under possible penalty of life imprisonment, indicating that such laws “deserve the loud condemnation and undisguised abhorrence of the whole civilized and Christian world.”
