William Lloyd Garrison went to see Isaac Mendenhall in Hamorton. Afterwards, he visited John and Hannah Cox in Longwood. Garrison attended a meeting in the Progressive Frends' cozy meeting house, where people listened to his speech "with gratifying interest." His speech was followed by Thomas F. Curtis, a materialist, who linked slavery with Calvinistic doctrine. Garrison replied to Curtis's speech, "showing the utter absurdity of such an idea." There were other speeches by Anna E. Dickinson and Joseph A. Dugdale. Garrison tells of a visit to see Bayard Taylor and his German wife. He mentions other visits in Philadelphia and to Girard College, etc. Garrison is now with J. M. M'Kim, but is leaving to go to James Mott's. He expects to see Edward Morris Davis "fresh from Fremont."
