Letter from Elizabeth Pease Nichol, Darlington, [England], to William Lloyd Garrison, May 2. 1841
Elizabeth Pease Nichol informs William Lloyd Garrison that although weeks have passed since her last correspondence, Garrison has remained in her thoughts "daily, almost hourly". Pease Nichol asserts that the hardships endured by the abolitionists are ensuring their respective individual formation as a "good soldier of Christ". Pease Nichol discusses Anna Braithwaite's charge of "duplicity" against Garrison, and asserts that her accusations are "fallacious". Pease Nichol closes her missive by touching down on matters of theological doctrine as pertains to the antislavery movement and its beliefs.
