William Robson writes to Francis Jackson Garrison thanking him for sending portraits of himself and his father, William Lloyd Garrison, to Robson. He says the portrait of William Lloyd Garrison "is amongst the best of his potraits I have ever seen." Robson says the Garrison's trip to England "will afford you many pleasant topics for memory to dwell on, both for yourselves & your friends on this side of the Atlantic." He then comments on politics, regretting "a kind of Democratic Reaction setting in" in the United States, and the "many things in European politics that are giving cause of deep anxiety here." Robson discusses an increase in "war feeling" in England and "the reform of our land laws is coming to the front." He predicts that when these issues are settled, "I see no reason why a political Union of all the English speaking nations on the face of the Earth should not take place, and all sectional legislation be based upon unitary principles." Robson then shares his hope that the "anxieties" of Garrison's sister, Fanny Garrison Villard, "are all over now in the renewed health & strength of her husband" and that William Lloyd Garrison is enjoying "the comfort and peace of domestic life. good health, & freedom from pain."
