The following transcript has been adapted from The Correspondence of Jonathan Worth (1909).

Asheboro, Nov. 5th, 1859.

Your remarks as to the Harper's Ferry attempt at insurrection induces me to ask the editors of the Fayetteville Observer, a paper extensively circulated in this State, to send you a copy of their issue of the 3d inst., which I have just received, the editorial and selected articles being, as I think, a fair specimen of public sentiment as to the slavery question and the Harper's Ferry commotion. The general feeling here is favorable to fraternal relations with the North and I send you this paper as some evidence of this feeling.

Morristown, Pa.
