SUSAN B. ANTHONY
INFORMS HER CORRESPONDENT THAT COPIES OF HER BOOKS HAVE BEEN DELIVERED TO THEIR EXPRESS COMPANY OFFICE. SO NOW HER RESPONSIBILITY FOR THEIR SAFE DELIVERY HAS BEEN SATISIFIED STATING: “MY SKIRTS ARE CLEAR”
ANTHONY, SUSAN B. (1820-1906). American woman-suffrage advocate. Good Typed Letter Signed, “Susan B. Anthony” on National American Woman Suffrage Association letterhead. One page, quarto. Rochester, N.Y., March 9, 1904. To Susan Thurston Cooper in Stamford Connecticut. Very fine condition. Anthony writes:
“My Dear Friend – Enclosed is the Adam’s Express Co.’s notice that your books are at their office in Stamford. And then I have received your letter saying that you had been notified that the books were there and had not called for them. Now you should either call for the books or else notify the Company to keep them until you did call for my skirts are clear now the books are at the office and you have been notified. So I shall leave it to you to see about. Sincerely yours, Susan B. Anthony.”
The above letter evidently refers to books that Anthony had published about her struggles for Woman’s Suffrage, which Ms. Cooper had ordered directly from Anthony. Very fine condition and a choice example for the suffrage /woman’s rights collector.
