Letter from Wendell Phillips, to William Lloyd Garrison, 4 July 74
Wendell Phillips writes William Lloyd Garrison reporting on "Nell's affairs", and lists an account of the sums received, as well as their provenance. Phillips states that he has thus far received a total of $500, and that he has the expectation of receiving some $20-30 in additional funds. Phillips alerts Garrison's attention to the offer from Caroline Weston, relayed in the enclosed note from Garrison's daughter Fanny, to give the sum of $140 for "The Liberator". Phillips notes his doubts that the possibilty of "The Liberator" being sold to a private library instead of "being given to Cornell" would be accepted by its major contributors.
