William Lloyd Garrison looked for James Lathrop's enlistment record but found nothing. Garrison thanks Oliver Johnson for the carte de visite. He spoke to Wendell Phillips about the idea of a trip to England since an increase in anti-slavery sentiment has taken hold there. On an earlier occasion, he urged Gerrit Smith to make the trip. Moncure Daniel Conway is trying to raise enough money to pay for a trip to England in April. Garrison does not want to go to England at someone else's expense. Garrison says: "I shall write to Theodore about a plan for the benefit of George Thompson, which I am sure will receive your approval and co-operation." Wendell, Fanny, and Frank Garrison have been sick with incipient diphtheria.
