New York, December 26, 1865.

Dear Friend:

As the question of Suffrage is now agitating the public mind, it is the hour for Woman to make her demand.

Propositions have already been made on the floor of Congress to so amend the Constitution as to exclude Women form a voice in the Government.* As this would be to turn the wheels of legislation backward, let the Women of the Nation now unitedly protest against such a desecration of the Constitution, and petition for that right which is at the foundation of all Government, the right of representation.

Send your petition, when signed, to your representative in Congress, at your earliest convenience.

Address all communications to
Standard Office, 48 Beekman St., New York.

In behalf of the National W. R. Com.
E. Cady Stanton,
S. B. Anthony,
Lucy Stone

* See Bill of Mr. Jenckes, of Rhode Island.
