Letter from Samuel May, Jr., Leicester [Mass.], to William Lloyd Garrison, 18th June, [1853]
Description:
Samuel May Jr. writes to William Lloyd that Stetson declined to give a speech at the Abington meeting, and that he (May) wrote to Charles Lenox Remond to replace him.

Estlin had an attack of paralysis in London.
