  • William Lloyd Garrison has returned from England, and, "strange to say," he was not seasick crossing the Atlantic. He was greatly troubled by an itching of the skin, about which he intends to consult Dr. White. He was glad to hear of Henry Villard's recovery from pneumonia. William L. Garrison called on Mrs. S. J. Savin and other friends in New York. He enjoyed his European trip. Mary A. Estlin accompanied him and Francis Jackson Garrison to North Wales. He saw George Thompson in Leeds and found him in poor health. Mrs. Thompson was also very sick; she is not expected to live long. William L. Garrison names those people who have called on him since his return from Europe. Richard F. Wallcut is unemployed. John Richie and his German wife are expected home soon. William L. Garrison comments about Fanny Garrison Villard's weight gain: "It seems California is the place for fattening women. Extreme obesity is a burden and a deformity; but I prefer to see a substantial looking lady than one 'thin as a rail.'"
