Susan B. Anthony Autographed Letter - 19 December 1898Description:
Anthony, Susan B. Autographed Typed Letter from Susan B. Anthony on the Stationery of the National American Woman Suffrage Association to Helen Pillsbury Cogswell, the daughter of Pillsbury Cogswell. Rochester, New York, 19 December 1898.
One page letter, signed "Susan B. Anthony".
Letter and envelope are both in very nice shape. The letter has only some light edge wear, and there is some slight postal soiling to the envelope.
In this letter, Anthony informs Cogswell that she has just received "some of the huge volumes of my biography" and notes that she will be dispatching a set to her shortly, "in memory of your dear father, mother and husband, and recognition of your own splendid services to them and to the world."
Anthony goes on to note that as they worked together on the book, her biographer, Mrs. Ida Husted Harper, would frequently say, "I do hope Mr. Pillsbury will live to read what I have said about him." Unfortunately, Parker Pillsbury died before the first two volumes of Anthony's biography were completed.
Years before, Pillsbury, Anthony, and Elizabeth Cady Stanton had formed what Anthony previously referred to as "the Revolutionary trio" for their long-time and very close association working on the entwined causes of abolition and suffrage which they began as Garrisonians in the 1850s. Later in 1868, bitter and furious with the traditional abolitionists over their refusal to include women's suffrage in what would become the Fifteenth Amendment--something that Stanton described as "stand[ing] aside and see[ing] 'Sambo' walk into the kingdom [of civil rights]--first-the trio began publishing a weekly periodical, Revolution, which forcefully advocated for women's suffrage as well as addressed a number of related issues including birth control, divorce, prostitution, and abortion (which, probably to the surprise of many today, they regarded as infanticide). Pillsbury remained active in the suffrage movement until his death in 1898 at age 88.
Anthony concludes her letter with an invitation to Cogswell for "a whole week's or month's I don't offer free shipping for this item, I will combine shipping with other sale wins provided I don't think any of items may be damaged during shipping.
