Title

[D8523M], Letter from William Lloyd Garrison, Jr. to Thomas Alva Edison, February 10th, 1885

Editor's Notes

"I presume my action in behalf of the Brockton station has caused you personal annoyance and possibly hard feelings towards me." I don't want to lose your confidence. "Antagonism with you was entirely unexpected on my part and the decision to withhold payment of the notes was reached only when we realized that the responsibility which we supposed assumed by other parties did not exist." We have not been unreasonable; we have been long-suffering and patient. I will leave to your later judgment as to my own part in it. "Under certain represenations I had persuaded friends to interest their money in our enterprise and good faith forced me to protect it."
