Abstract

Letter from the Finance Committee of the Total Abstinence Society to J.B. Mather and George Bell. It accuses George Washington Walker of misusing the Society's funds and then slandering it. On the outside of the letter under the heading 'Records of a Slanderer and an Ingrate' is a statement that it is a lie put about by Mather 'a man whom above most in the colony George Washington Walker has sought to befriend'.
