13.63 The records of both committees (1 ft.) consist largely of petitions and memorials. For a more detailed description see the records of the select committee. The records of the standing committee consist only of petitions, memorials, and resolutions of State legislatures referred to the committee, 1913-19 (7 in.). Most of these documents express approval of an amendment to the Constitution providing woman suffrage (63A-J85, 65A-J56). Other petitions on this subject were tabled (63A-K15, 64A-K9, 65A-K11), rather than referred to the committee.
