William Lloyd Garrison has to forego his visit to Weymouth to see Maria Weston Chapman due to the death of Lucy (McKim) Garrison [his daughter inlaw and the wife of Wendell Phillips Garrison]. Garrison writes: "Her case was one of combined epilepsy and paralysis. She survived the attack just a fortnight, but never once during that time evinced any intelligent recognition either of her husband or mother, or any one else." William Lloyd Garrison will leave for Europe on the 23rd. He offers to take parcels to Maria Chapman's relatives living abroad.
