Helen’s health

Nov. 4, 1868

Writing to Wendell Phillips Garrison:  “… for a week past your mother has been seriously ill.  She had for several weeks previous a persistent cough, which troubled her a good deal day and night, … causing a congestion of the lungs and so affected the action of the heart as really to imperil her life. …She is, however, really more comfortable today … Dr. Geist thinks she has passed the crisis, and we may hope for her convalescence.   1
