Description Elizabeth Cady Stanton was a suffragist, social activist, abolitionist, and leading figure of the early women's rights movement. She would be happy to meet with Mariana Wright Chapman and Mrs. Chapman Catt when they return from Atlanta. Supports "educated suffrage" and believes it is suicidal to exclude "an army of intelligent, moral, humble patriotic women" while adding "masses of ignorant voters." She closes by saying, "We should conscientiously oppose the admission of another man until we are enfranchised."
