William Lloyd Garrison thinks that Francis Jackson's bequest would best be used "in aid of the Freedmen's Educational Commission." Garrison is planning to go to Europe to see the Paris Exhibition and will return home with Henry and Fanny Villard and Francis Jackson Garrison. William L. Garrison will go as a delegate of the American Freedmen's Aid Commission. His trip depends on Mrs. Garrison's health. He is worried about a sore that has appeared on her paralyzed leg. He plans to reserve passage aboard the "Great Eastern." George Thompson may go with him.
