Lucy Stone letters to J.P. Holland re: suffrage work and Association membership, 1888-1891. Digital

Scope and Contents

The collection contains several letters written by Lucy Stone during the period she served as Chair of the Executive Committee of the Massachusetts Woman Suffrage Association and editor of the Woman's Journal, published by the American Woman Suffrage Association. Most of the letters were written by Lucy Stone to Mrs. J. P. Holland. There is also a 1891 form letter signed by Stone, and most likely written and signed by Francis J. Garrison, who served as the Association's treasurer. Addressed "Dear Friend," the form letters were most likely sent to members of the Massachusetts Woman Suffrage Association and others to help raise funds for the 40th anniversary of the National Women's Rights Convention held in Worcester Massachusetts, the site of the first convention. Also includes Holland's annotation on Lucy Stone's letter dated April 25, 1889 "This was one of the last appointments filled by the writer shortly before her death, J.P.H."
