Holograph, signed with initials.
William Lloyd Garrison complains of the heat he endured on his trip to New York. There were very few abolitionists or clergymen on the train. Garrison tells about the meetings held at Cooper Institute in which he, Wendell Phillips, Horace Greeley, Theodore Tilton, and Henry Brewster Stanton spoke. Frederick Douglass was an unwelcome guest at a business meeting. He visited Mrs. Underhill, a medium. The weather has been rainy and warm, with thunder and lightning. He tells about John Hopper and his family, the first session of the Convention of Loyal Women, and an invitation to visit Mr. and Mrs. Cornelius Bramhall on Sunday. Henry C. Wright is looking well and hearty. Garrison comments that Parker Pillsbury's health is improving, but he "will not be surprised if he breaks down utterly."
