One year ago this day, William Lloyd Garrison arrived in London. He will now be away from home until October 1st. He was met at the wharf by J. Miller M'Kim and escorted to James Mott and Lucretia Mott's home. They had three days of meetings in Norristown attended by crowds of men and women. Garrison writes that "[Frederick] Douglass arrived on the second day, and was justly the 'lion' of the occasion; though a considerable number participated in the discussions, our friend Lucretia Mott speaking with excellent propriety and effect." One evening the meeting was disturbed when window panes were broken by some rowdy boys. Since Sydney H. Gay was present at the meetings, there should be reports in the newspapers the Standard and the Pennsylvania Freeman.
