    Susan B. Anthony Autograph Letter Signed "Susan B. Anthony". Two pages written on the recto and verso with an additional autograph mock-up for a broadside laid-in, 5" x 8", Rochester, New York, September 25, 1856, to M. F. Sweeting. Ms. Anthony responds to an invitation from the Wayne County teachers to present a lecture on "Educating the Sexes Together". She writes, in part:

    "I thank you and the Wayne County teachers for your kind invitation & shall be happy to read my address on "Educating the Sexes Together" before your Institute...You say nothing of means for defraying expenses or remuneration. I therefore make the following proposition. That there be an admission fee at the door of 12½ cts. & after paying incidental expenses the proceds [sic] be mine. I would suggest that you get some handbills printed & have them posted in the village as early as Saturday & also have some sent to the little villages in the vicinity of Lyons. More might also be given through your churches on Sunday...Enclosed is a form of handbill which you have liberty to make any alterations you deem proper. Yours for Equal Education to All, Susan B. Anthony". An historic letter, written early in Anthony's career, with old fold creases, otherwise bright and in fine condition. From the Judith Kaplan Women's History Collection.

    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.
