Date created 1871-01-10
Creator Mott, Lucretia, 1793-1880

Written from Roadside. Lucretia Mott gives a report of a lecture given by Susan B. Anthony. She fears the upcoming Women's Convention in Washington will be a failure because Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony will not be there. She discusses periodicals including "The Nation," "The Standard," "The Revolution," and the "Woman's Journal." She mentions Swarthmore College and her inclination that "that institution promises success." A portion of the letter has been cut out and removed.
