REPORT OF THE EQUAL SUFFRAGE LEAGUE OF HAMPTON

At the monthly meeting of the Hampton Equal Suffrage League held June 3rd at Mrs. John F Michels' house, thirty-two (32) new members were reported, making a total of 220. This number combined with Newport News, gives a membership roll for the 'Peninsula' of about five hundred. A visit by a delegation of suffragists to the Carpenters' Union in Hampton, was reported. Many signed the petition and six new members joined there.

Three large posters and a small map were put up by two of our members in a vacant store (They cleaned the window for the purpose). Books were circulated also.
