The seventh annual convention of the Equal Suffrage League of Virginia xxx held at the Jefferson Hotel Auditorium in Richmond, November, 12, 13, 14, 1917 was an epooh xxxx making one. Two events helped to make it so. One was the coming of Dr. Anna Howard Shaw to speak at the xxxxxxxxxxxx Mass Meeting, the other was the strong sentiment xxxxxxxxx for the Federal Amendment prevailing in all sessions of the convention. Virginia suffragists, true to their xxxxxxxxxxxxx agreement with the National Association, have always worked along both State and Federal lines. Up to this xx year, however, the feeling in Virginia against federal legislation has been so marked that work for the Federal Amendment has made little or no progress.
