Letter from Susan B. Anthony to U.S. Senator Joseph M. Carey, June 26, 1894

Susan B. Anthony expresses her frustration with male legislators who she believes are politicizing women's suffrage, using events in Kansas an example. The desire to have Carey speak to the suffrage committee is evidenced by still another request by Anthony. Anthony references suffragists Harriet May Mills, Isabel Howland, and Kansas suffragist Jane "Jennie" Slocum. She also mentions attorney Edward Lauterbach, who was the Chairman of the Republican County Committee in New York, a delegate to the 1894 New York State Consitutional Convention, and a vocal supporter of women's suffrage. Also mentioned is John A. Barhite, a Rochester delegate to the convention who supported women's suffrage. Includes transcription.
