Description Elizabeth Cady Stanton was a suffragist, social activist, abolitionist, and a leading figure of the early women's rights movement. Mrs. Blatch is going away for the holidays so Chapman and Mrs. Catt should postpone their visit for the couple of weeks. She wants to talk over some points of social as well as political philosophy with them. Has cataracts in both eyes and is advised that she will be totally blind soon. Thinks Susan's book is ''quite interesting,'' but needs much ''pruning.'' States that Susan B. Anthony often says that Catt is the only one ''who can fill her place 'in paying her own salary.''' Closes by saying ''there is much hard thankless work still ahead.''
