In this letter to William Lloyd Garrison the author shares "intelligence ... that perhaps none of your present correspondents would feel interest enough on the subject to write of it." They then explain that they have heard that Nathaniel Peabody Rogers "is miserably ill" and near death. The author even quotes from a letter they received from Dr. E.A. Kittredge discussing Rogers' health, saying he "is fast approaching that bourne from whence no travellers return." They then ask if Garrison migh reconcile with Rogers, and they ask him to "remember all you have known of him since your first acquaintance with him ... when he leaned on your heart and trusted you so fully, all your public mutual attacks on the bulwarks of tyranny, both in the old and the new world ..." The author discusses how they became acquainted with Rogers' through his writings in the Liberator and the Herald of Freedom and how "the chains of superstition that had bound my spirit one after another were reft as by lightning as I read his paper." They discuss the ongoing conflict between Garrison and Rogers before the letter ends suddenly mid-sentence.
