    Woman's Suffrage: Five Great State Postcards. Here we present an exceptional group lot of cards specific to state-associated suffrage groups. The two Rhode Island cards are extremely rare and although hand writing on post cards tends to detract from the value, the writing in this case actually adds to the cards' value since it is that of noted suffragist, Sarah Algeo. Her personal message on each card mentions a suffrage parade. The Vermont card is in great condition, and is only one of three known. The Tennessee card, with both Democratic and Republican candidates seeking the support of the newly enfranchised woman, is a great card. The card was made for the post-suffrage amendment by two years, it has a tear and some bends, but it is highly unusual to find anything from a Southern state. The California card, put out by the Political Equality League, is scarce, but known. Still, its image is very appealing..

    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.
