Handwritten copy of letter; not William Lloyd Garrison's handwriting.
The Rev. Nathan Robinson Johnston of Topsham, Vermont, urges William Lloyd Garrison to attend the anti-slavery convention in West Randolph. Garrison has agreed to go and wants Samuel May to join him. Garrison has also agreed to attend the anniversary meetings of the Pennsylvania and Ohio anti-slavery societies in October. Garrison must give up the idea of going to Brookfield because he is suffering from from his periodical "brain attack." All of Garrison's family have been sick. Francis Jackson purchased the house next to Garrison's house. Garrison had an interview with Hinton Rowan Helper, the author of Impending Crisis; he urged Garrison to attend the Abington celebration. The Rev. Henry Bleby, a heroic missionary from Barbados, will attend the celebration.
