Garrison’s love for Helen

Writing to Helen about five months before their wedding, here is a flavor of Garrison’s feelings.  “I am no longer William Lloyd Garrison, but Helen Eliza Benson.  There is such a fine and perfect affinity of souls between us, that I have lost my identity, and now completely engrossed in your person.”   ( Letter written, April 24, 1834, readinggarrisonsletters)
