Boston: Woman's Journal, . Item #2190
9 1/8” x 6 7/8”. Single sheet folded. Pp. . Near fine with an infinitesimal stain along the top right edge of the first page. Excerpts of a speech given by Senator George F. Hoar at the 1873 annual meeting of the New England Woman Suffrage Association. This is an offprint of a longer pamphlet containing Hoar's speech issued by The Woman's Journal which was founded by Lucy Stone and Henry Blackwell and was the official organ of the National American Woman Suffrage Association. In the speech, Hoar answers several of the arguments against women's suffrage such as a woman's inability to judge issues of the day, while maintaining that a republic that espouses equality for all should allow women to participate in its decisions. Hoar ultimately argued for women's suffrage in the Senate as early as 1886. OCLC locates 13 copies over two entries. This item is offered by Langdon Manor Books, LLC, antiquarian booksellers.
