William Lloyd Garrison requests that Maria Weston Chapman signs the printed circular letters regarding the case of George Thompson. Garrison is anxious to have him "relieved as speedily as possible." He remarks on Anne [Warren Weston]'s pending trip to Europe and hopes that her sight will improve. Garrison confesses his affection for Anne Warren Weston: "Being a married man, my admiration of her is not that of a lover; but it comes as near that as the case will admit!"
