There was a severe snowstorm. William Lloyd Garrison agrees with Samuel May Jr. that the best use of Francis Jackson's bequest would be to turn it over to the New England Freedmen's Aid Society. Wendell Phillips will probably want it given to the American Anti-Slavery Society for the support of the National Anti-Slavery Standard "and the agitation of the suffrage question." Garrison does not see why the Jackson bequest should be used for the latter purpose. Garrison refers to a present for Samuel May Sr. Garrison will not attend any of the meetings of the Massachusetts Anti-Slavery Society. Garrison heard General Benjamin F. Butler speak on the impeachment of President Johnson.
