Description Mary Jane O'Donovan Rossa was an Irish poet and political activist. She thanks Chapman for letters, Woman's Journals, leaflets, and ''good counsel.'' She hopes to profit from them and pass on the good word. She expresses that she would like to join an ''equality club'' but is not aware of any near her. She talks about the possibility of starting her own club per Chapman's suggestion but feels she is unequipped to do so without any prior club experience, even though she has been ''devouring all the equal suffrage literature written.''
