William Lloyd Garrison gives his views on what should be done in the case of the Francis Jackson bequest. Since he cannot be present at the meeting before the Master in Chancery, he leaves instructions. He reviews the proceedings at an earlier hearing and notes that the Reconstruction Bill recently passed by Congress guarantees suffrage to Southern freedmen. Garrison recommends that the money from Francis Jackson's bequest be given to the New England Freedmen's Union Commission.
