Notes:
Letter transcribed by Francis Jackson Garrison.
William Lloyd Garrison declines to purchase a Sharp's rifle found in the engine house at Harper's Ferry after John Brown's surrender. Garrison writes: "I gave no sanction to John Brown's method of emancipating the slaves, though conceding to him the purest and noblest motives."
On page three of this manuscript, there is a separate note by Francis Jackson Garrison explaining how Henry D. Wertz acquired the Sharp's rifle.
