Summary
Oliver Johnson writes William Lloyd Garrison reporting on the Woman Suffrage anniversary which he attended. Johnson states that Stanton, Anthony, and Hooker have "had the effect of making even zealous and earnest friends of the cause" in New York City hesitant to publically associate themselves with the suffrage movement on account of their association with Woodhull and their adherence to "her delusion of suffrage through the Fourteenth and Fifteenth Amendments". Johnson states that Stanton is prepared to break with Woodhull, and states that the apparent point of division between the two camps lies in Woodhull's desire to launch a presidential campaign on a political ticket of unified suffragists and Internationalist labor, and Stanton's belief that political action should not include a presidential campaign. Johnson states that while Stanton's meeting as a "dreary" affair much in need of Garrison's presence, Woodhull's convention "looked and acted like a body of lunatics", which he decries as "utterly beneath contempt". Johnson reiterates his belief that Woodhull presents an obstacle to the suffragist cause. Johnson predicts that Frederick Douglass will break with Woodhull. Johnson closes by stating that Mary Anne's health has greatly declined, and her survival seems unlikely. Johnson states that as a result, he is uncertain if he will be able to attend that year's Yearly Meeting in Longwood
