Letter from James Miller M'Kim, Phil[adelphi]a, [Pa.], to William Lloyd Garrison, Ap[ri]l 20 / 61
James Miller M'Kim writes William Lloyd Garrison informing him that several persons had arrived to the office to "advise" that they forego the planned and advertised meeting for the month of May. M'Kim asserts that he refused any suggestions to this point. M'Kim asserts that they must continue with the meeting if the "occasion should be just". M'Kim states that Lucretia Mott will be absent, and that Robert Purvis will be there for a portion of the proceedings. M'Kim encloses a letter from E.M. Davis wherein the author states his concerns over the potential public uproar (as Fort Sumter had been attacked only days beforehand) should they proceed with the convention as planned.
