Summary
Samuel Joseph May writes William Lloyd Garrison expressing his pains and profound sympathies for Garrison in the "deep afflication that has overshadowed [Garrison's] household", reminding Garrison that he has been daily in his thoughts. May states his pleasure to see that Garrison was able to attend the Anti-Slavery meetings in the previous weeks. May muses on the character of President Abraham Lincoln, offering his view that while Lincoln displays an anxiousness to "be and to do right", he is too often liable to "err through the influences" of his education, his "evil" advisors, and the "complicated difficulties" of his course of action. May congratulates Garrison upon the arrival of George Thompson, and states that he "chafes" at his distance from Boston. May declares his hopes that Thompson shall journey to Syracuse to deliver a speech. May relays his having learned from various mutual friends of the improving physical state of Helen Garrison, and states his wish for Garrison to write him shortly on the subject. May comments on the sound health of his daughter Charlotte, who had given birth to a healthy infant only three weeks earlier
