Summary
Oliver Johnson writes to William Lloyd Garrison concerning the upcoming Yearly Meeting (in Longwood), and states that his mind is "hardly in a fit state" to make any plans regarding this meeting, given that the condition of his wife Mary Anne only worsens, and that he is hardly able to determine whether he will even be in attendance. Johnson states that while his wife's physical health wanes, her will remains strong, and her mind, clear, and that in spite of himself, he hopes for her passing for her own account, as she is ready and anxious, in addition to her immense physical suffering. Johnson states that he is loathe to request that Garrison attend the meeting on his behalf, as Garrison had assisted him so many times in the past with the meeting, and is now himself disinclined to travel owing to his own health. Johnson states that Mary Anne's funeral, be it in a matter of days or of weeks, will be held in Longwood
