Words of Cheer, from Arthur Tappan

August 26, 1864

Addressed to Garrison, Tappan regrets that he cannot attend a meeting to which Garrison has invited him, in Philadelphia, due to his age and infirmity.  “During the years that have intervened since we last met, I have often recalled the time when we were united in working for the slave, and regretted than any occurrences should have estranged us from each other.”
