    Susan B. Anthony Autograph Letter Signed with envelope face. Three pages, 5.5" x 8.5", November 22, 1886, Eau Claire, Wisconsin, on letterhead that reads "National Woman Suffrage Association" and lists the association's officers-including Susan B. Anthony. In this hastily written letter to "Miss Carrie S. Lamb" of Oshkosh, the tireless suffragette writes of the "meetings" of the N.W.S.A: "We are having atrocious weather now-a-days, but pretty fair meetings after all. . . . I do hope your ladies will persevere in keeping up their agitation. I had a small but good audience at Neenah [Wisconsin]." Fearful of public speaking as a young woman, Ms. Anthony later routinely gave near one hundred speeches a year. Age toned; near fine. Included is the front of the transmittal envelope with printed N.W.S.A. information.
