Merrill, Walter M. Letters of William Lloyd Garrison, v.6, no.36.
William Lloyd Garrison says that his failure to write sooner "is owing to my aversion to the mechanical use of the pen." He has attended several women's suffrage conventions. He discusses The Revolution, a periodical, as an organ of the suffrage movement. George Francis Train is no longer connected to it. He criticizes that association that Mrs. Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony had with George Francis Train in the suffrage movement. He heard that Parker Pillsbury is no longer active in the movement. He praises The Agitator, "a weekly paper, published at Chicago, Illinois, and edited by Mrs. Mary A. Livermore." He mentions a meeting to be held in Cleveland to organize the American Women's Suffrage Association.
