A letter to Garrison, comes from I. Boutwell, of the Theological Seminary, Andover, dated Dec. 31, 1838. It tells of an African Sabbath School, started in 1832, by a Miss Bliss, from Boston. Held in the basement of the 2d Presbyterian church, the school sometimes numbered 200 people. There was notice that the school could no longer be continued, but the article indicates that a number of people continue to meet with the teachers in their rooms.
