Mrs. A. N. Tyler, Sec., Equal Suffrage League, 802 E. Broad St., City.
Dear Mrs. Tyler: - I received a 'phone message from Mrs. Clark during the past week requesting me to deliver a short address before your organisation, on the subject of "Workingmen's Compensation Act." The Virginian, on Sunday, stated that the subject would be "Labor Legislation". I would regard it as a favor if your organization would state which of these subjects would be more pleasing to them. Trusting I may receive an early reply, and with kind regards, I am, Yours very truly, James B. Doherty, JBD/S
