Title:
Letter from Samuel May, Jr., [Leicester, Mass.], to William Lloyd Garrison, March 25 / [18]70
Description:
Samuel May, Jr. informs William Lloyd Garrison that he has just finished responding to a note issued to him by Mary Grew on the passing of his father, and copies the end of this missive, in which he discusses the proposal to hold a special meeting of the Antislavery Society in honor of the passage of the 15th Amendment, a proposal which May labels "superfluous" owing to his belief that the American Anti-Slavery Society could not claim credit for the passage of this amendment. May closes by providing Garrison with a list of items which he requests that Garrison and sons "hunt up" for him at the Boston Public Library.
