Historical Records Survey. 314 East Main St., Richmond, Virginia.

November 27/36

Mrs. Frances F. James, Lovingston, Virginia.

My dear Mrs. James:-

In 1926 the Equal Suffrage League of Virginia presented to the State of Virginia all of its remaining banners and flags and these are now on display in the Capitol as articles of historic interest.

Now we have the opportunity through the Historical Records Survey, a WPA project, of collecting and classifying for permanent preservation all available materials on woman suffrage in our state so that later a history of the movement can be written. We feel sure that you will contribute any items of interest or any data you may have or can get in connection with the work for suffrage in and around Lovingston.

We desire especially to get Minutes, samples of pamphlets or flyers or other printed matter including newspaper clippings, or information that workers may remember, etc. Short stories of certain meetings, or mention of outstanding speakers will not come amiss. In fact we want ANY data that will help to make as complete a history of the suffrage movement in Virginia as it is possible to make.

The only other name we have listed in Nelson is Mrs. J. B. Jordan of Rye River. It may be that you and Mrs. Jordan can get together and talk the matter over and give us your combined recollections of the work done for suffrage in your County. The Nelson County League was formed by Mrs. John H. Lewis of Lynchburg, July 19, 1915 with 8 members, and you as its President.

With the best of good wishes, and trusting you will give us all the aid possible in making our "Archives" full and explicit,

Sincerely yours,

Miss Ida M. Thompson, Research Worker, Historical Records Survey.

Dr. Lester J. Cappon, State Director.
