Women's suffrage tract, reprinting a vehement pro-suffrage speech by Senator George Frisbie Hoar of Massachussetts. Hoar includes letters of support from Wyoming Governor Francis E. Warren, testifying that women's right to vote had been "productive of much good in our Territory," and Washington Chief Justice Roger Greene, memorably describing a strain of voting rights opposition "bound by traditional notions of man's superiority and woman's sphere [that] seems unable to open its eyes or get its head straight or go, and lies curled up upon itself, altogether like a chick in an eggshell who ought to hatch, but doesn't."

Price: $25.00
