Description

    Proof Copy of the Society of American Friends of Russian Freedom Circular "To the Friends of Russian Freedom", Circa 1891. 5" x 7.5", four pages, with mounting remnants on the verso otherwise in very good condition. The Society of American Friends of Russian Freedom was formed in Boston and included many prominent social reformers and writers of the day. This proof circular features the printed names of T. W. Higginson, Julia Ward Howe, Samuel L. Clemens, and William Lloyd Garrison [Jr.] as well as a list of other prominent members all written in the same hand. The circular expounds on three issues plaguing the Russian people, which were, in short 1) the lack of a constitutional government; 2) ill-treatment of the Jews in Russia; and 3) deplorable bureaucratic despotism and reprehensible treatment of its people. From the Judith Kaplan Women's History Collection.
