Autograph Letter to Dr. Charles E. Rice in Response to his Request for Letters

[New York]: 1893. Single sheet, 5 3/4" x 8 7/8" Very good. Letter has two mailing folds and remnants of two paper mounting tabs, not affecting any text.

Suffragist pioneer Elizabeth Cady Stanton here responds to Ohio manuscript collector Dr. Charles Elmer Rice, who had apparently requested of her letters of noteworthy individuals. He seems to have sent her an abolitionist's letter, possibly to entice her to accede to his request.

The transcript of her reply reads: "Dr. Charles E. Rice / Dear Sir / Many thanks for the perusal of enclosed letter. / It shows what struggles the pioneers [crossed out] in the great battle for freedom our early abolitionists had in order to raise money to carry on the work. I am sorry that I cannot help you to any letters from the persons you mention. / With kind regards / Yours cordially, / [signed] Elizabeth Cady Stanton.
