    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.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
