William Lloyd Garrison did not get to say goodbye to Elizabeth Pease (Nichol) and other abolitionist friends who had come by ferryboat to see him off in Liverpool; Garrison was seeing to his luggage at the time. Garrison apologizes profusely. Garrison feels badly for Richard D. Webb who came from Dublin to bid Garrison farewell. Garrison describes the shabby treatment he and Nathaniel P. Rogers received as occupants of the "forward cabin." They were told not to "associate with the other passengers, nor sit at the same table with them, if we persisted in retaining our place forward, we nevertheless resolved as a matter of anti-slavery self-denial and economy, not to change our position." Garrison gives an account of the passage, the death and burial at sea of the third officer, and the ship's arrival in Halifax and Boston.
