Letter from Samuel May, Jr., Leicester, [Mass.], to William Lloyd Garrison, October 23 / [18]78

@ Boston Public Library


Holograph, signed.Title devised by cataloger.Samuel May, Jr. thanks Garrison for the delivery of Boston newspapers detailing the account of Garrison's birthday, and of Garrison's "full notice" of George Thompson's death. May supposes that Garrison is still grappling with how to best pay tribute to the memory of George Thompson, and offers his thought that Boston "is the place for it", and lists suggestions for date and location. May states his hopes that President Hayes will mean "to go to the very verge of his powers" in order to safeguard the lives and rights of South Carolinians in the "discharge of their ordinary duties as citizens".
