About this Item

Single sheet, 5 3/4" x 8 3/4", handwritten on both sides and signed by Susan B. Anthony at the bottom of the reverse. Stationery with the printed letterhead of the "Fortieth Anniversary of the Woman Suffrage Movement, International Council of Women assembled by the National Woman Suffrage Association of the United States, etc."[See Images] Riggs House, Washington, D.C. March 10, 1888. The letter has a one time double fold for an envelope which is missing. No splits, chips or stains. Letter has only the slightest tone to the edges. The paper has a partial watermark of a globe half inserted into an open envelope. The handwriting including the signature is beautiful and clear.***** The salutation is to "My Dear Helen" who is Helen Pillsbury Cogswell, daughter of Parker and Sarah Pillsbury and wife of Brainerd Cogswell, founder of the Concord[NH] Monitor. Parker Pillsbury was a Concord, N.H. Congregational minister and a most quarrelsome Abolitionist. A friend of William LLoyd Garrison, Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton, he was a long-time supporter of Woman Suffrage and of Susan Anthony. Their respect and fondness for each other extended into the whole of Pillsbury's family. In this letter Anthony speaks to the Pillsbury's illnesses and hopes the Pillsburys may improve sufficiently that Helen might attend the anniversary gathering in Washington, D.C. Anthony says:"I remember your Father's preachments against Washington- but nevertheless there is much that is good & hopeful here - and especially there will be when all our splendid women get here-". She closes the letter "With best love to each of your trio--" [signed] Susan B. Anthony.***** NOT EX-LIBRARY. Bookseller Inventory # 528
