The Suffragist Weekly Organ of the Congressional Union Editor -- Miss Lucy Burns Art Editor -- Mrs. Nina Allender Votes for Women Richmond, Va., May 29, 1915. Dear Suffragist: In order to gain effective support all over the United states for the Susan B. Anthony amendment, it was recently decided at a conference of the Advisory Council of the congressional Union to form in every state an organization of women who believe in this amendment and are willing to work for it. To accomplish this a conference will be held in Richmond on June 10, to which all interested suffragists are invited. Since it is necessary to know in advance the number will be present at luncheon, you are requested to inform Mrs. W. Hill Urquhart, Chairman of Committee of Arrangements, The Raleigh, Richmond, Va., before June 8, as to your attendance on this occasion also stating whether or not you desire hospitality during the conference. Since matters of importance to the cause of equal suffrage will be discussed at this conference, you are earnestly urged to attend. Very Sincerely yours, Sophie G. Meredith Member of Advisory Council of Congressional Union.
