Summary
George Thompson expresses to William Lloyd Garrison his pleasure at the latter's "gaining health & vigor", and states that Garrison's renewed and rejuvenated health will be a welcome sign following years of labor in service of abolition. Thompson recounts having received a letter from Oliver Johnson regarding that year's Yearly Meeting of Progressive Friends, and reports that Lucretia Mott, Robert Purvis, and E. M. Davis were in attendance. Thompson describes a letter printed in the National Anti-Slavery Standard suggesting the nomination of Wendell Phillips and John Mercer Langston for President and Vice-President on the Republican Party ticket in 1868
