Holograph, signed.
William Lloyd Garrison regrets that he was unable to make a tour of the Scottish Highlands. Accompanied by Mary A. Estlin, Garrison heard William H. Channing preach in Kensington. He did not like the church services at all. He had tea with Mrs. George Thompson. He says about Mrs. Thompson: "She is feeling very miserably, and has cause to feel so for reasons which I may not here put to paper, but she has my deepest sympathy, and I am now satisfied that she has not had justice done her in regard to home affairs. The future looks very dark for the family; for it is a very serious question what he can and what he will do for a living." Garrison does not see how George Thompson can make a living in either England or America. Garrison caught a cold in Glasgow. Henry Villard had just reached London and wants to stay here for a week or ten days.
