About this Item: Autograph. Condition: Fine. An envelope (6" x 3-1/4") with a lengthy printed statement by The Citizens' Suffrage Association. Although not signed by her, it is addressed in the hand of Susan B. Anthony to her younger sister: "Miss Mary S. Anthony/Rochester -- N. Y./U. S. America." On the side of the envelope is written "Zurich/Apr 23rd 83," likely in one of the sisters' hands. Mary Stafford Anthony was a suffrage activist in her own right. Her interest in women's rights, in fact, preceded that of her sister. On August 2, 1848, she attended the Adjourned Convention in Rochester of the First Woman's Rights Convention and, together with her father and mother, signed the Declaration of Sentiments. She was instrumental in establishing the Women's Political Club (later renamed the Political Equality Club) in the 1880s. In 1893, she was elected corresponding secretary for the New York State Woman Suffrage Association, and in 1904 when the International Woman Suffrage Alliance was formed, Susan B. Anthony was declared its first member and Miss Mary Anthony was unanimously declared its second. Seller Inventory # 016106

Volume one has a loose hinge in the front, but it and vol. two are in very good condition. Volume three is very worn with some loose preliminary matter and a well worn binding. Volumes one and two have a tipped in signature by Susan B. Anthony on the end paper. All three volumes are inscribed "Lizzie Everett | from | Flora M Kimball | National City California | April 4, 1887" This is the official, in-depth, history that reprints letters, speeches, petitions, and all the rest. This is an extraordinary history that shows the organizers' penchant for detail and recognition that a complete history of the movement was not only desirable but essential. There are numerous internal documents, letters to conventions, speeches and the like that were not reprinted elsewhere. An invaluable resource. Kimball was active in the woman suffrage movement in California. In fact, she was instrumental in getting the Grange society to support women suffrage in 1878. "Mrs. Kimball was the first woman ever elected Master of a Grange, and was for eight years a member of the San Diego School Board. She was a most effiicient manager and the beautiful grounds around her home were the scene of many gatherings. A gifted writer also, her satires during this campaign, over the signature of "Betty Snow, an anti-suffragist "made many converts." [Anthony et al., History of Woman Suffrage, Vol. IV, page 496.].

About this Item: She urges a major supporter, ÒIf you will just start the ball, it will soon get to be a large one. You might get some of the rich M[embers of] C[ongress] & Senators to pledge the sum.ÓIn May 1869, Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton formed the National Woman Suffrage Association (NWSA), a woman-led organization devoted to obtaining a federal woman suffrage amendment. During the 1870s and 1880s, it was mainly Anthony who sustained NWSA. She was convinced that her primary task was to educate society - legislators, the male electorate, and all women - to an understanding of the crucial importance of the ballot. She educated the public through her cross-country lecture tours, her relationship with the press, her lobbying of legislators, speeches in Congress, state suffrage campaigns, and her guidance of suffragists nationwide. During the early-mid 1880s, Stanton and Anthony once again worked in concert to produce the first three volumes of the ÒHistory of Woman SuffrageÓ, the story of the movement they created. In 1882 and again in 1886, Stanton traveled to England and Europe to visit two of her children and to investigate the possibility of an international suffrage movement. When Anthony joined her in 1883, they agreed to organize an international conference of women in 1888 to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Seneca Falls Convention that had kicked off the womenÕs suffrage movement. The International Council of Women, which gathered in Washington in March 1888, proved to be the largest womenÕs convention of its time. It stimulated cooperation among U.S. and foreign women reformers, thus unifying those advancing the suffrage cause in many countries.But getting funding for the Council was a challenge, so in February 1888, a month before it would convene, Anthony wrote to some of her some reliable contributors asking for money. One of these, Isabella Challacombe Hedenberg of Chicago, was a long-time prominent member of the NWSA, whose name appears often in the proceedings of the national conventions. Her husband was a real estate tycoon who sympathized with the cause in which his wife was engaged. In the early 1890s he would finance NWSA campaigns and make direct appeals for support to labor leaders like Samuel Gompers. In response to AnthonyÕs letter, Isabella wrote with an idea for aiding the organization obtain and sustain financial security, both for the Council and beyond. Anthony, in this letter, approved, but she placed the onus on Hedenberg to get the ball rolling; and knowing the NWSA had friends in Congress, Anthony suggested to Hedenberg that she contact them to raise funds for the venture.Autograph letter signed, on her National Woman Suffrage Association letterhead, Washington, February 18, 1888. ÒI have been thinking of your proposal of yesterday ensuring a regular income to the National W.S.A. to enable it to carry forward its work south as well as north - and if you will just start the ball, it will soon get to be a large one. You might get some of the rich M.C.s & Senators to pledge the sum. Now, my dear, it is a splendid thing for you to try to make up, and the one who has the thought come to her is the very one to succeed in its practice.Ó She adds, ÒP.S. Wednesday p.m. is my day to be home, and I hope youÕll be able to report good progress there.ÓIsabella Hedenberg died in 1893, and Anthony eulogized her at that yearÕs NWSA convention, saying ÒIsabella Hedenberg, whose genial face and generous hand we miss here todayÓ.

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. Signed by Author(s). Seller Inventory # 528

About this Item: ÒNow it is left for the present and future generations to carry forward the work to final success. How soon it will be an accomplished fact that woman will stand the peer of man - socially, morally, industrially and politically - remains for the future to tell.ÓShe inscribes a set of her ÒHistory of Woman SuffrageÓ to her cousin, describing the 4 stages of the womenÕs suffrage movement as 1. ÒEarlyÉstruggles for libertyÓ; 2. The Òherculean effortsÓ that were made to make the movement national; 3. The Òvaliant efforts to get the right of women to voteÓ; and 4. The work that remains to be done.Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton initiated the project of writing a history of the women's suffrage movement in 1876. The result, the ÒHistory of Woman SuffrageÓ, was a landmark work that serves as a moving testament to what intelligent, courageous, and committed individuals can accomplish when they join together to accomplish a great goal. Producing this history, which was ultimately a four volume set of books, dominated AnthonyÕs life for much of the next decade. It was written and published during the heat of battle, and the preface notes that some womenÕs rights activists felt it was too soon to publish the history of a movement that was still working to attain its objective. But Anthony and Stanton were determined to capture the words and insights of their contemporaries in the movement while they were still living. Today the work is an extraordinary primary resource.In the introduction the authors wrote of their intentions: "We hope the contribution we have made may enable some other hand in the future to write a more complete history of 'the most momentous reform that has yet been launched on the worldÑthe first organized protest against the injustice which has brooded over the character and destiny of one-half the human race.ÓVolumes 1 through 3 of the magnum opus were written by Anthony, Stanton, and Matilda Gage. Volume 1 covered the early period of the womenÕs rights struggle from 1848-1861; Volume 2 covered the period from 1861-1876; and Volume 3 covered the period from 1876-1885. The fourth volume, written by Anthony and Ida H. Harper, came out in 1902.In 1905 85 year old Anthony met with President Theodore Roosevelt in Washington, D.C., about submitting a suffrage amendment to Congress. On February 15 of 1906 she gave her ÒFailure is ImpossibleÓ speech at her 86th birthday celebration. She died at her home in Rochester on March 13, 1906.SusanÕs cousin Anna Anthony was born in 1853. She married Josias J. Andrews and they had daughters. In August 1905, with her career virtually over and having only six months to live, Anthony sent Anna a set of her ÒHistory of Woman SuffrageÓ, and inscribed the volumes with what constitutes a summary of the stages of the womenÕs rights movement, and a virtual valedictory of her work and career. At the end she passes the torch to the younger generation. Each volume is inscribed to ÒMrs. Anna Anthony Andrews, 138 Chateau Street, Los Angeles, California.ÓVolume 1: ÒThis volume tells of the early efforts to secure equal civil rights. May you and your dear girls become familiar with these struggles for liberty - is the wish of your affectionate cousin, Susan B. Anthony, August 26, 1905, 17 Madison Street, Rochester, N.Y.ÓVolume 2: ÒIt is with great pleasure that I give these 4 volumes to you and your lovely daughters. I trust you will study & see what herculean efforts we made in very many states of the union. Sincerely your cousin, Susan B. Anthony, August 26, 1905, 17 Madison Street, Rochester, N.Y.ÓVolume 3: ÒIn this volume is given the valiant efforts to get the right of women to vote - under the original Federal Constitution and Art. IV & XV amendments. The arguments were clear as could be but the political exigencies forbid - and we had to wait. Affectionately your cousin, Susan B. Anthony, August 26, 1905, Rochester, N.Y.ÓVolume 4: ÒHere is the culmination of the work for the emanc. Seller Inventory # 11675

About this Item: From the 1870s into the 1890s, Anthony gave speeches and lectures throughout the country at a grueling pace, and seemed always on the move. She lived for years in hotels and with friends and relatives. These speeches and lectures had, of course, a political purpose, but she was paid for them, and those monies made up a sizable part of her income. Meanwhile, she was also working on the magnum opus of the womenÕs suffrage movement, History of Woman Suffrage, four volumes of which would appear in her lifetime. Finally, in 1891, at the age of 71, she was prevailed upon to settle with her sister. But she still maintained a full speaking schedule.Rachel Foster Avery was active in the womenÕs suffrage movement, and by the 1890s was corresponding secretary of AnthonyÕs National American Woman Suffrage Association. Though almost four decades separated them in age, the two became so close that Anthony referred to Rachel as her niece. As AnthonyÕs 75th birthday approached in 1895, Avery became concerned about her doing so much speaking and traveling, and did not want finances to play a role. So she orchestrated a plan to provide the aging Anthony $800 on an annual basis in the form of an annuity. 202 friends of womenÕs suffrage, mostly other women, contributed, and $5000 was raised, a very large sum back then; the annuity was established.Anthony reached Washington on the morning of her 75th birthday, February 15, 1895. The National WomanÕs Council was to open its second triennial meeting on the 18th, and its official board and many delegates were already in the city. When she arrived she found that Òher girls,Ó as she was fond of designating the younger workers like Avery, had arranged for a banquet in her honor at the Ebbitt House that evening. Some 50 people attended, and it was a beautiful affair. After a number of speeches were made, Avery arose and stated that the friends of Miss Anthony from ocean to ocean and the lakes to the gulf had placed in her hands sums of money amounting to $5,000. This she had put into a trust fund, purchasing therewith an ÒannuityÓ of $800, which she now took great pleasure in presenting. There were 202 contributors and although Avery had been for several months collecting the money, incredible as it may seem, the whole matter was a complete surprise to Anthony. Realizing that during the last 45 years she had spent practically all she had earned, and so much of what she had received she had given to advance the cause to which she had devoted her life, they determined to put these funds into such a form as would make it impossible to expend it. She was greatly overcome and for once could not command the words to voice her feelings. This annuity was a great relief to her, and made it possible for her to cut back on lecturing and concentrate on her book. From AveryÕs suburban home, Anthony sent grateful letters to the contributors to her annuity.This is one of those letters. Typed letter signed, on the letterhead of Rachel Foster Avery, Philadelphia, April 19, 1895, to a Mrs. Madole. ÒMy dear Mrs. Madole: At my seventy-fifth birthday dinner, Ebbitt House, Washington, D.C., my loving and loved first adopted niece, Rachael Foster Avery, surprised and delighted me by the announcement that she had secured an $800 annuity for me, and now, a month later, at her own lovely country home, she has read to me the names of the dear friends who contributed to the generous gift. Among them is yours and I hasten to thank you for thus helping to lift me financially above the need of earning the necessary sum to meet my simple home expenses. For myself and my only surviving sister, Mary S. Anthony, who has ever made it possible for me to go and do and be for our good cause, I am Most gratefully yours, Susan B. Anthony". We obtained this from the Madole descendants and it has never before been offered for sale.This is a moving memento of that wonderful moment when the supporters of womenÕs suffrage stepped up to support Antho.
