William Lloyd Garrison was glad to hear that the box of shoes arrived safely. They will not send shoes again. Garrison writes: "But we shall be confidently looking for you early in the summer, and trust all the circumstances will be favorable to your coming." It was unfortunate that John Ritchie went to call on Fanny Garrison Villard when her children were sick. William L. Garrison claims that American newspapers publish much more crime news than European papers, and he hopes that Fanny G. Villard will point this out to her German friends. Garrison writes: "The woman suffrage question was argued yesterday and to-day before a Joint Committee of the Legislature in the Hall of the House of Representatives, which was crowded to overflowing by a most intelligent and respectable audience. I spoke on both occasions, but our Boston papers make no reports that give the least idea of what was uttered."
