My dear Kiss Averill,
I received yours of the 7th, and I so not wonder
that you feel discoursged_unfier the circumstanes. However, I saw Miss

Mary Harrison in Lexington-the other day, and she promises to help you.

Also, I understand that Esther Burnam still considers herself a member

of the Frankfort F.R.A., and has not joined the Hadison ?.?.A. in con-
sequence.Drop her a line, and tell her to send her dues.

I do not hhink the principal object of the Frankfort E.R.fi. is by
any means to stand by us when our Committne comes to Frankfort, by to
Ihelp our cause all the time by”stan&ing up and being counted” as on
the sifie of Equal Rights,so as to give the only answer thich convinces
when our opponents say that women i0 not wish to vote. Nothing but be-
longing to a suffrage association can convince the floubtfnl that women
do wish to vote; and therefore we make our only.obligation of membership
’ giving the name and paying the annual dues.

I I fancy that Hrs.Shepard wrote to Mrs.0harlotte Vatson; but as I
knew she had gone to T":‘whitsh’as thst spelled right?— ) I wrote to you.

Please do not let the Frankfort Esp, fail us this year, but collect
the dues of the few and try to enlist more. Could not Miss Mary Tarrison
or you be prevailed upon to go to Ashland to the convention? You would
find it a pleasant occasion.

Very cordially yours,



 181 }.fiill St., Len ngton,
Nov.14th, I9m6.


Your letter and literature come this morning at a very aus-
picious moment. I have long tho :ht it desirable to join the Grange;
but it is impossible for me to take the laboring oar in any other or-
'ganization then the Equal Rights association; Therefore since your meet-
ing here I have been ousting abort for a sniteble person who i might
get interested in the Grange. In my mind I hsfl fixefi ufon hiss Laura
Estill, of Lexington,or rather its vicinity, who is-a very intelligent
young women, the deug.ter of one of our lezfiing farmers, sni one whose

interests are.eltogether with the farminq community. She passed the


night at the house and at Breakfast I was talking to her on this sub-

ject, :md‘she hsfi askefl me to Write to you for literature, when the
mail came in and I received your lett r and literature. She says she
.Will consider the question one will let me know later, If she will help
I am sure she will be a valuable assistant. I have given her my name as
one of the signers of the petition of sixty.

I noted the names of those to thom you write that you hrve sent
petitions. Isee among them Mrs.Etta DeLong and Dr. Taylor. I doubt if
they can do much good right now, for they were instrumenyal in pushing
one of the Mutual Investment Companies which terminated so disastrously
that it impaired the confidence of the community in the soundness of

their judgment; sni since the Grange is not well known, their advocacy_.


 will not recommend ifi.

3133 Laura fistill's [address is Lexington, Ky. firobably it will
not be desirable to write to bar until E learn whether or not She cares
to lend a helping hand in organizing. In t; ogqo; I
myself. qhe has a much more oxtondefi acquaintaxoe wifih
than I hevo, and knows person 11y themost influential of f%
herself anon on uttraotivo lady that if she will assist o“
feel that I have done the very best goosible Eon in Gnangé in this

718889 say to firs,”oleott thafi I roe” vnfi
for which I thank hor. l was quite diafiygointed

passea through Lexington, but I know how-many oalls 01 have upon ycur

time as yoy firavel.

“lease give my regards to Irs.“oloott, anfi believe me

Very truly yours,
