Dear President-: Because of the impossibility of getting our convention speakers for the 9th and 10th of November, the convention dates have been put back to November 7th-8th-9th, that is, Saturday, Sunday and Monday.

The convention will open on Saturday morning at 10 o'clock. Saturday night there will be a big rally with Miss Kate Gordon of New Orleans, Mrs. O. H. P. Belmont, Mrs. Ruth Meanery Stuart and possibly Dorothy Dix, the last two being well known southern writers. These are on their way to the Southern State Woman Suffrage Conference to be held in Chattanooga the 10th and 11th of November.

On Monday night Mrs. Kate Waller Barrett, Mrs. Stephen Putney and others will be the speakers.

We hope to make this a very important gathering of suffragists from all over the State and we urge each local league to send their full quota of delegates that Roanoke and the Southwest may be won for suffrage by the splendid showing of women who are interested.

Please send to this office and also to Miss Lucinia Terry, Chairman of the Hospitality Committee of Roanoke, the names and addresses of your president, delegates and alternates who intend going to the Convention, so that the Roanoke Committee may be given ample time to find hostesses for them.

Hotel Roanoke will be State Headquarters for the Convention and Mary Johnston, Kate Langley Bosher, myself and others will stay there. The rates are $1.50 and up (room and meals.)

Please notify Miss Terry as to wether [whether] you wish to accept the private hospitality which they are so generously offering.

Kindly let us have the names of those who will attend by the 25th of October, or prior to that date if possible, in order that such names may be published in the next issue of the Virginia Suffrage News and other papers, as you know publicity counts tremendously in this campaign.

We wish to accounce[announce] at the Convention the number of enrolled suffragists there are in Virginia. Please let us have the number or numbers you have listed, and at the State Convention please give a
