    Susan B. Anthony Autograph Letter Signed "Susan B. Anthony". Four pages, 5.25" x 8.5", on National Woman Suffrage Association letterhead, Tenafly, New York, October 24, 1880.

    Ms Anthony responds to a young woman with suggestions on how she can best aid the women's suffrage movement. She writes, in part: "I know nothing of your capabilities as to intellect or purse - else I might be able to discover other directions in which you could aid our work for the emancipation of women. If you have money a liberal contribution to our N.W.S. Association would be a most acceptable service & a most needed one. What we most need is a weekly newspaper published in New York City. We lack only the money to enable us to have it...I shall hope to hear from you again to learn more of you and of the means you have of aiding our work. Your letter is so beautiful that I know you must be possessed of powers to help our good movement...". A letter with excellent content, and with the exception of some toning to the paper and a few scattered light stains, in fine condition. From the Judith Kaplan Women's History Collection.
