Description Sarah L. Stilson was a teacher. She expresses anger that ''Mr. Beecher'' (most likely Henry Ward Beecher), has been slandered by some people calling him an anti-suffragist. She writes, ''How can anybody with the slightest reasoning faculty be other than a suffragist?'' She also talks of young girls who are taking up the subject and even showing interest in national affairs. She tells Chapman not to get discouraged, for she knows that ''beyond this struggle is surely victory,'' even if it be 10 years from now or later.
