    Henry Blackwell and Lucy Stone Autograph Letters Signed With a Henry Blackwell Authored Woman's Suffrage Imprint.

    A wonderful grouping including (1) an autograph letter signed "Lucy Stone", one page, on Massachusetts Woman Suffrage Association letterhead, 5.5" x 8.5", Boston, February 12, 1887, to American suffragette Mrs. [Tennessee] Claflin. Ms Stone inquires about Claflin's health after she missed an important recent meeting and adds "... Municipal suffrage passed both houses by a handsome vote!!". Fine condition. (2) an autograph letter signed "Henry B. Blackwell", one page, on American Woman Suffrage Association letterhead, 5" x 8.25", Boston, December 26, 1887, to Mrs. [Tennessee] Claflin. Blackwell requests an "...article on "Women on School Committees" of say 1000 words, for the...Woman's Journal of Dec 10 of which we shall print a large extra edition for use at the N E Woman's Suffrage Bazaar...". Fine condition. (3) A two-page imprint written by Henry B. Blackwell titled "Objections to Woman Suffrage Answered". The imprint is undated, but probably first appeared in an issue of Woman's Journal. The paper has toned a bit, but it remains in near fine condition. From the Judith Kaplan Women's History Collection.
