State Headquarters, Richmond, VA. Commercial Building, Second Street Between Broad and Grage. March 19-1914. My dear Mrs. Townsend:- In reply to your card, will state that in 1914 74 members of the Legislature voted against the suffrage resolution, 13 for, and 13 did not vote at all. In 1912, 85 members voted against, 12 for, and 3 did not vote. Personally, I feel that we would have received a much larger vote for our measure had the Speaker of the House been at all fair.
