Summary
Oliver Johnson credits William Lloyd Garrison for making of him a "temperance man, an abolitionist, & a non-resistant". Johnson notes that his work as editor of "the Standard" precludes him from returning to Boston, and expresses his wish that Mr. (David Lee) and Mrs. (Lydia Maria) Child would not have refused the editorialship. Johnson expresses his desire that the "friends" of the cause begin searching for a permanent editor prior to the annual meeting. Johnson closes by noting that his pamphlet is selling well, with over 100 copies already sold at retail, and states that he has succeeded in "making "no small stir" among the Quaker aristocracy", including inciting George F. White to preach an anti-abolitionist sermon in response to Johnson's work
