My dear Mrs. Barton:- This evening's Times Dispatch, (Richmond), contains a letter from the Va. President of the Ass'n. Opposed to Suffrage, addressed to Elihu Root of the National Security League, regarding celebrations of the anniversary of the signing of the U.S. Constitution. This gave me the idea of wiring Mrs. Valentine, asking if she would send you a telegram to be read, if you can arrange it, at the mass meeting Wednesday night. I hope she will give us a little chance for suffrage publicity in Winchester in connection with this meeting, if mention of it can also be gotten into the Star. Certainly such an anniversary is a most fitting time to call attention to an amendment which carries out in spirit the method of amending our constitution inaugurated during the constitutional convention by one of Virginia's own sons, Mr. Madison. I wish the meeting could pass a resolution endorsing suffrage amendment.
