Holograph, signed "Your loving Father."
Letter written in pencil.
William Lloyd Garrison writes: "Harold will be lucky if he escapes with no serious injury to his eye." Garrison has a very severe cold. He thinks that many Republican newspapers disapproved of Senator James G. Blaine's speech "in favor of excluding Chinese immigration to these shores." He notes that Jay Gould made millions in manipulation. Annie Hallowell spent the night at William Lloyd Garrison Jr.'s house. Garrison tells of a curious snowstorm that left only about a foot of snow in two days. Garrison comments that "Mr. Frothingham's withdrawal from his pastoral office will probably be the dissolution of his congregation."
