This is a reply to Alfred H. Love's invitation to give a lecture a few days before the opening of the decade anniversary celebration (of the American Anti-Slavery Society) in Philadelphia. William Lloyd Garrison cheerfully agrees to give the lecture provided J. M. M'Kim agrees to lecture. Garrison would like to read Alfred H. Love's statement relative to being drafted "and declining to pay the $300 commutative alternative." Garrison elaborates on this: "I think the money can be paid without any compromise of the peace or non-resistance principles; but if you do not, (and in a matter like this, everyone will do well, and best, to be fully persuaded in his own mind,) you must be true to your own convictions."
