- Letter from Elizabeth Swan Mawson, Ashfield, [England], to Francis Jackson Garrison, July 26 - 1877
Elizabeth Swan Mawson writes Francis Jackson Garrison that the "proof copies" of photographs taken by H. S. Mendelssohn have arrived, and forwards these to Garrison for his review and pleasure. Mawson expresses her hopes that her brother Joseph Swan's "attempt may prove as successful as Mendelssohn's", and promises to forward to Garrison her brother's photographic proofs shortly. Mawson states her concern over newspaper reports of the "alarming riots in America by the labourers of the railways", and declares her worry that Mr. Villard will be "be placed in painful circumstances in consequence".
