In a letter from Garrison, in Northampton, there is a recounting of the recent accident involving the family, and Helen’s progress in recovery,
but here also is an acknowledgement of the death of Knapp. “In an evil hour he was led by adversity and business mismanagement , to put the cup of intoxication to his lips, and for the last three or four years sustained a wretched existence…. which led to his disconnexion with the Liberator, and which rendered that disconnexion absolutely essential to the existence of the paper….” Then follow kind words about Knapp.
