Item Information

Holograph, signed.
In a week, William Lloyd Garrison is coming to Washington with Francis Jackson Garrison. He expects to call on various public officials. Garrison writes: "Your mother will miss us both, during our absence; but Hepza and Ella will do all they can to fill the vacancies; and no doubt dear, good Charlotte Coffin will be happy, as usual, to be her companion, and remain till I get home." Garrison will send a copy of the Independent containing a letter criticizing Wendell Phillips "for his disparaging and invidious speech in Boston, last month." Garrison commends Senator Charles Sumner's last speech in the Senate on suffrage. The weather has been cold for some time past, but the mercury has now risen to forty degrees. Garrison says: "The title of my coming lecture in Philadelphia is, 'Liberty Victorious'---not the South. It will not at all please those who are morbidly inclined."
