Letter from F.H. William, Syracuse, N.Y., to William Lloyd Garrison, Aug[ust] 25 / [18]63
Description:
F.H. Williams requests William Lloyd Garrison's assistance in locating a former slave named Charlotte Bryant (nee Parsons), who left Newburn, N.C. that summer with her intended destination being Boston.

Williams states that he will be housing and caring for Bryant's aunt until she becomes accustomed to the North and to her freedom.
