Summary
W. S. Nichols expresses his gladness to William Lloyd Garrison upon hearing of the latter's safe passage home and restored health from his voyage to Europe, and declares that the "cause of Freedom has been advanced" by Garrison's visit. Nichols expresses his regrets that Garrison was unable to speak in Bradford, and sends the collective sympathies and solidarity of the Temperance Reformers of Bradford. Nichols lauds the "great change which has been effected" in the United States, and calls upon "enemies of strong drink" to redouble their efforts, in particular towards the Freedmen of the South, "lest they fall into a more fatal bondage". Nichols recounts to Garrison his sense of an "oversight" that the resolution passed at the Leeds antislavery meeting did not take into account slavery in Brazil, the Spanish Colonies, and in Portuguese "protections" in Africa
