Title:
Letter from William Lovett, London, [England], to William Lloyd Garrison, March 1st, 1847
Description:
William Lovett states his regrets that he has been unable to be as active in the abolitionist cause as he is inclined, owing to personal circumstances, but states that he is making a point of attending "most of the council meetings of the League", calling it an "instrument of great good", and that it is serving the purpose of exposing the realities of slavery to the people of Great Britain. Lovett asserts that should no other good result from Garrison's visit to England than the formation of the Anti-Slavery League, then this alone will "produce fruit in season to fully compensate" Garrison's labors. Lovett solicits Garrison's opinion concerning an address which he proposes to deliver.
