William Lloyd Garrison lauds Samuel Joseph May for reminding them of the agreement to hold a special meeting of the parent society in Syracuse at the end of September. Garrison sends a call to be printed in the Syracuse Daily Chronicle. Garrison intends to be at the meeting. He trusts that Wendell Phillips and Lucy Stone will also be at the meeting. He will try to persuade Theodore Parker to attend and preach for Samuel Jospeh May on Sunday. Garrison would like to take his wife along, but the travelling expenses are too great. If they have a reporter, it will be Mr. Yerrinton. Garrison is glad that Gerrit Smith resigned his seat in Congress; Garrison deplored Smith's speech on the annexation of Cuba.
