Title:
Letter from John Murray, Bowling Bay, to William Lloyd Garrison, 30th Oct[ober] 1846
Description:
John Murray informs William Lloyd Garrison that business and personal matters will preclude him from joining Garrison as hoped. Murray states his wish that the meeting held the previous evening was a good one, and states his hopes that Garrison's labours will see fruition in the abolition of slavery. Murray offers some additional thoughts concerning he and Garrison's conversation the previous day on the imprisonment of Edward Seamen. Murray informs Garrison that he has yet to receive a response from Charles Lenox Remond concerning a gift of "a small collection of seals and autographs" sent by Murray. Murray encoses the sum of £1 as a contribution to defray Garrison's travel expenses.
