George Washington Julian writes to William Lloyd Garrison after receiving his letter, saying "it is most grateful to my feelings, for if it had not been received after all that has passed, I should have felt myself unspeakably ourtaged ..." He praises the letter for "fully exculpating you from all blame & doing complete justice to my character & motives." He says that, "You are the last man in the world towards whom I would have cherished unkind thoughts, or of whom I could have said unkind words." Julian then reports that "Mr. Hull" is "about to marry the girl he seduced having been divorced from his late wife" and that he has written Julian "several letters, threatening assassination in each." He tells Garrison that since his last letter to him about Hull, he has spoken "to several persons who know Hull far better than I do" and he has learned that Hull "is more thoroughly dishonest, depraved, and profligate than I had dreamed of ..." Julian says that the affair has taught him "that when a man comes among you from the West, without vouchers, & asking to be publicly endorsed, it is best to wait a few days till communication can be had with reliable men in the region in which he is known."
