Because of the sudden death of Francis Jackson, William Lloyd Garrison will not be able to make his planned visit to Lynn. Jackson's funeral will be at Hollis Street. Wendell Phillips and William Lloyd Garrison have been invited to speak. The post-mortem examination showed that there was a large tumor in Francis Jackson's stomach and "much inflammation of the intestines." Garrison comments on how the abolitionist ranks are thinning with the recent death of these friends: E. G. Loring, Hovey, Philbrick, Theodore Parker, Mrs. Follen, Miss Cabot, Mrs. Earle, and E. L. Capron, "and now Francis Jackson!"
