Summary
Oliver Johnson writes Garrison on the eve of what would be the day prior to the start of the annual meeting of the American Anti-Slavery Society, and inquires if Garrison will be in New York that week in the absence of an anniversary from the Freedman and Union Commission. Johnson extends his invitation to Garrison to accompany him to the Yearly Meeting of Progressive Friends at Longwood. Johnson states that he will write George Thompson that evening to extend this invitation to him, as well. Johnson speculates on the anniversary of the American Anti-Slavery Society under the controll of Phillips and Pillsbury, and informs Garrison that he has learned that their "treasury is nearly empty", and that Susan B. Anthony and others are proponents of changing the name and focus of the organization to reflect an inclusion of the matter of women's rights
