    Description

    Susan B. Anthony Autograph Letter Signed. One page, 8.5" x 10", January 21, 1899, Rochester, New York. The letter is to Mrs. Bertha Poole, president of the Livingston Park Seminary Association, asking that Mrs. Poole and a delegate attend a meeting at Watson House, January 25, 1899, to hear the reports of the Committee on Constitution and Nominations of the Local Council of Women. The original National American Woman Suffrage Association transmittal envelope, addressed in Anthony's hand, and a post card showing Anthony's Rochester home, accompanies the letter. The letter and envelope are toned, else all are near fine. Bertha Poole was a reform activist and magazine writer who, in 1907, married Walter Weyl, one of the founders of The New Republic, whom she met at Hull House.
