Holograph, signed with initials.
Major George Luther Stearns died; he was John Brown's right hand man. William Lloyd Garrison is looking forward to seeing Francis Jackson Garrison and the Villards. Mrs. Helen Eliza Garrison's leg ulcer is healing. William L. Garrison writes: "Miss Wiggins leaves us to-day, after a visit of four months." Mr. and Mrs. Oliver Johnson arrived for a visit yesterday. R. W. Emerson spoke at George Luther Stearn's funeral. A temperance meeting in honor of Senator Henry Wilson was held in Tremont Temple. Garrison says: "Black has taken the best photograph of me that I have had taken. I shall bring some copies with me." Billings's portrait of him is good. The National Testimonial will be presented on May 1.
