This lot has closed

Estimate: $100+

Description

Complete original issue of the Shaker and Shakeress Monthly from March 1873 (Vol. III, No. 3), eight pages, 9.5 x 13, published by the United Society at Mt. Lebanon, New York. A column on the third page, headed "American Slavery: The Woman's Suffrage Question—The Case of Susan B. Anthony," discusses the proceedings in the case of Anthony's arrest for voting in Rochester. It concludes: "Susan B. Anthony is, or she is not, a human being. If she is a human being, she may do wrong, and may be punished for that wrong under laws which she had no part in forming, and by executive officials of those laws, whom she had no voice, or choice, or vote, in electing. Is that republicanism, or is it Church and State slavery not yet abolished?" In fine condition.
