    Description

    Frances Willard Autograph Letter Signed. One page on "World's Woman's Christian Temperance Union" letterhead, 8.5" x 10.75", Milford Springs, New Hampshire, July 11,1897. Written late in life, the American suffragist reformer writes to a "Miss Ward". In full: "Certainly I will leave my poor dear little ewes-so lonesomely composed, 'sitting out' in winter days watching the birdie, while I was wrapped in blankets and trying to get better. For a letter so kind and considerate from a woman of whom I think so much I would even let the little, lame-winged venture lag a life-time. Ever Yours for the Better Life, Frances E. Willard." Heavy wrinkling of the lightweight paper at the center folds results in some obscuring of text.
