Summary
Oliver Johnson writes William Lloyd Garrison informing him that he has completed writing the first two volumes of his recollections of "The Early Anti-Slavery Days". Johnson states that the first volume covers the period prior to Garrison's departure to Baltimore, while the second covers the period including Garrison's work on the Genesis of Universal Emancipation and his arrest. Johnson declares that the third volume will cover the period between Garrison's release from prison to the establishment of the Liberator, and poses a series of questions to Garrison regarding his recollection of specific events during this time, which he requests that Garrison respond to immediately. Johnson laments that he is unable to retire so as to devote himself to a grand history of the antislavery cause, as "those who know the facts are rapidly passing away". Johnson closes by stating his disappointment in Whittier's sketch of the convention of 1833
