Merrill, Walter M. Letters of William Lloyd Garrison, v.6, no.54.
William Lloyd Garrison begins this letter: "I have been cherishing the expectation of seeing you and George, and all the dear ones at the Park, this anniversary week; but, for the past two days, I have been and still am in a feverish condition, and must therefore, as a matter of prudence, remain at home." Garrison cannot attend the meeting of the American Woman Suffrage Association. He thinks Theodore Tilton and "the Revolution party" may try to influence the meeting wrongfully. He describes the weather. Mary Soule of Kansas is visiting Garrison. He tells about Hiram R. Revels, a black senator from Mississippi and the successor of Jefferson Davis, and his visit to Boston. William Lloyd Garrison and Wendell Phillips will probably reply to the pamphlet written by Theodore Lyman in defence of his father. Things have appeared chaotic at William L. Garrison's house this past week due to having drain pipes and water pipes replaced.
