One letter addressed to Mrs. Saney from Susan B. Anthony dated New York, May 10, 1882. Requests that she notify her when she has arrived home. Asks that she report to Rachel G. Foster who will be travelling with May Wright Sewall from North Pennsylvania to Indianapolis. Language used by Anthony alludes to fighting a battle whereby she refers to an "enemy," "ammunition," "war." Also mentions the need to raise $10,000 for a women's suffrage campaign.
The letter refers to an attempt to pass an amendment to Nebraska's state constitution, allowing women the right to vote. A convention was held in Omaha in 1882, but despite efforts to pass, it was defeated. Nebraska passed the legislature in 1917 for women to vote in municipal and presidential elections. The 19th amendment to the U.S. Constitution passed on August 26, 1920.
