William Lloyd Garrison sent the "Sonnet -- Character" to Maria Weston Chapman for publication in the Liberty Bell. In a note beneath the poem, Garrison offers to write a page or two of prose to fill up gaps in the Liberty Bell.
Also enclosed in the folder are two unrelated prints (visual works). The first is a half-length portrait of William Lloyd Garrison. Painted by N. Jocelyn. Steel-plate. Engraved by S. S. Jocelyn. Printed beneath the image is a quotation by William Lloyd Garrison: "My country is the world---my countrymen are all mankind. [Speech at Exeter Hall, London, 1833.]"
The second print (visual work) is a half-length portrait of Mrs. Eliza Garrett, seated. Engraved by J. C. Buttre, New York.
