Summary
Aaron Macy Powell forwards to William Lloyd Garrison an "enclosed notice" which he requests to be printed in that week's edition of the Liberator. Powell gives Garrison a favorable review of the recent antislavery meetings he has attended to, although he confides that "which is personal and superfluous in discussion" leaves him displeased. Powell asserts that the primary matter of importance in the "presidential question" is "the amendment of the Constitution", and that with this matter settled, he would experience "little anxiety about the presidency". Powell asserts that he is "impelled to dissent" from Garrison's support for the re-nomination of Abraham Lincoln, owing to his belief that there exist "better men" more qualified to "administer public affairs in the period of Reconstruction", and asserts that the Baltimore Convention will do well to select a candidate who will be "an improvement upon Mr. Lincoln's, as Grant is superior to McClellan"
