In this letter, William Lloyd Garrison discusses a young colored girl who has offered to do domestic work. She would replace Hannah, the domestic worker currently working for the Garrisons. Today, the Free Soil Convention is in Northampton. The defection from the ranks of Zachary Taylor and Lewis Cass appears considerable. Garrison longs for the day when the issue of the dissolution of the Union will be made by all free states. He hails the Free Soil movement as the beginning of the end. George and William Garrison arrived safely. The daguerreotype of little Fanny is much admired. The daguerreotype of William Lloyd Garrison is not quite as satisfactory.
The bottom part of pages 3-4 has been torn off.
