Unknown writer to "Dear Brownie", January 18, 1874
Unknown writer (Author)"Dear Brownie" (Addressee)
This letter is believed to have been written to Olympia Brown. It refers to Susan B. Anthony and Isabella Beecher Hooker. The writer describes the state approach to secure women's suffrage in Connecticut. The writer believes: "an act of the legislature can permit women to vote in town meetings- & in school districts also . He [Mr. Hooker] will make a little tract on this before we go- & next spring we will ask our suffrage legislature to decree that all women who pay taxes on five hundred dollars of real estate or personal property may vote- no one will dare vote against this."
