George Thompson gives news of his children. He discusses his relations with his constituents in London, who, in spite of enemies, approved of his tour to the United States; he was "treated better than well." He denounces the conduct of [John] Scoble. [The Rev. John Scoble was an abolitionist and an opponent of William Lloyd Garrison.] He regrets the change in F. D.'s [Frederick Douglass] North Star and prefers the Commonwealth to "that body of death" the Emancipator. [The references to the publications, the North Star and the Emancipator, express Thompson's disapproval of the Liberty Party, as opposed to pure Garrisonianism.] He praises [John Bishop] Estlin. Thompson considers it desirable to stand for reelection to Parliament.
