Holograph, signed with initials.
William Lloyd Garrison discusses writing articles for the Independent. He does not want to crowd other writers out. He discourses on the use of the word "devilish." Theodore Tilton must have had a very successful lecture tour. Garrison describes Tilston's manner of speaking. The "Subscription Festival" of the Massachusetts Anti-Slavery Society was last evening. Wendell Phillips opposed the ratification of the 14th Amendment before a committee of the Massachusetts Legislature.
On page four of this manuscript, there is an undated note by Oliver Johnson to Theodore [Tilton]. Johnson writes: "Here is Garrison's letter replying to one from me in which I transcribed the sentence or two referring to him in your last letter. I am sure you will be gld to see it. Pray return it to me."
