William Lloyd Garrison tells about his reply to Wendell Phillips's accusations against him in the legal case concerning Francis Jackson's bequest. In response to Alfred H. Love's criticism that certain lines in William Lloyd Garrison's reply are not "Garrison-like," Garrison says that he has never been "given to circumlocution, and never hesitates to 'call a spade a spade.'" Garrison defends his reply to Wendell Phillips's criticism and his actions in connection with the Jackson bequest. Wendell Phillips refuses to pay the money over to the New England Freedmen's Aid Commission.
