Description

On Suffrage letterhead, Anthony confirms a speech at a New Orleans "Womens Club" with "Miss May Wright Sewall"

ALS, three pages on two adjoining sheets, 5.5 x 8.5, National Woman Suffrage Association letterhead, March 7, 1885. Written from New Orleans, a letter to Ms. Underwood, in part: "Yours of Feb. 28th has just overtaken me…I am overwhelmed with the amount enclosed. I wrote Ms. Robinson before leaving Washington to leave my travelling expenses. She having paid my hotel bill of $11.70—and that I would trust to providence for the return of them. You ought to have deducted the $12 it seems to me, but since whatever owes to me is surely going with suffrage work, it is only taking from part of the vineyard & giving it another." Anthony adds her initials "S.B.A" to the close of a postscript, "I shall stay here until about the 20th inst, am invited to speak before the 'Womens Club' of this city next Monday evening—Miss May Wright Sewall also." In fine condition.
