Handwritten copy of letter; not William Lloyd Garrison's handwriting.
William Lloyd Garrison will endeavor to attend each of the "conventional meetings" specified in Samuel May's letter. Charles C. Burleigh and Parker Pillsbury spoke at meetings in Pawtucket, which were well attended. Garrison favors having only two speakers at each convention. If Wendell Phillips and William Lloyd Garrison go to Andover, Parker Pillsbury should go elsewhere. Garrison asked Theodore Parker, Caleb Stetson, and John Weiss to attend a meeting in Worcester. He hopes Mary Grew will go to Worcester. Frederick Douglass is in Ohio.
