Letter from James Manning Winchell, Boston, [Massachusetts], to William Lloyd Garrison, 1866 Jan[uary] 2
J.M.W. Yerrinton writes to William Lloyd Garrison about receiving his "note of yesterday, so full of personal affection & generous praise." Yerrinton says that he "regard[s] it as the very highest and choicest privilege of my life that I was so early brought into association" with Garrison and the "vanguard of the anti-slavery" cause. He also praises the "example of unselfish devotion to a righteous cause," which Garrison provided through the Liberator and his "course as Editor ... [which] filled me with admiration and love." He further thanks Garrison for the gift to his wife and hopes that "we may often meet, though our business connection has been terminated" (with the ending of the Liberator).
