Holograph, signed with initials.
William Lloyd Garrison told Caroline Weston that she could have William C. Nell's complete set of the Liberator. He assumes that Wendell Phillips will inform the librarian at Cornell University of his intention to supply a substitute for Nell's set of the Liberator. Garrison's rheumatism is very severe and he plans to go to Dr. Joseph Dow for treatment. Garrison writes: "How sad and shocking is the Tilton-Beecher imbroglio! I place no confidence in Tilton's veracity, nor in his conjugal fidelity; and I am not yet willing to believe that Mrs. Tilton and Beecher are verily guilty of adultery." Mrs. Helen Eliza Garrison is in feeble health.
Accompanied by an envelope addressed to Rev. Samuel May, Leicester, Mass.
