William Lloyd Garrison expresses his gratitude to Elizabeth Pease Nichol. Garrison points out the irrelevance of the attack made by British abolitionists on his religious views. The bitterest English opponents are in the Society of Friends. Garrison explains his views. The Sabbath Convention was induced to cut off free discussion. The Bible test was introduced by Nathaniel Colver, Amos Augustus Phelps, Charles T. Torrey, Alanson St. Clair in order to "make capital for new organization, and to bring a false accusation against the leading friends of the old organization, some of whom happened to be in the Convention." Garrison denies the validity of the accusation made by Anna Braithwaite. He quotes numerous passages of the Scriptures. He refers to a work by John H. Noyes. Garrison is waiting for John Anderson Collins to arrive. Garrison praises Charles L. Remond and criticizes Joseph Sturge. Mrs. Child has charge of the Standard.
