William Lloyd Garrison explains the reason for his staying in Brooklyn, Conn. He intends to return to Boston by the first of September. Garrison concludes this letter by saying: "Another slave State is to be added to our Union---even without one note of remonstrance in Congress! Rely upon it, Texas too will soon be ours---and then it seems to me will follow a dissolution of the Union, or the entire subjugation of the free States to the will of the bloody South. Save us, O God!"
