Letter from Susan B. Anthony to Miss Wetherell, re: a speaking engagement.


Best known for her lifelong crusade for woman's suffrage, Anthony was first active in the temperance and anti-slavery movements. In May 1869 she organized the National Woman Suffrage Association, with Elizabeth Cady Stanton as president. From 1891 to 1900, she was the second president of the National American Woman Suffrage Association. For further information, see Notable American Women (1971).
