New Hotel Jack The House That Jack Built Winchester, Virginia O.L. Jack. Prop. July 24, 1919. My dear Mrs. Barton: To-day I had a circular letter and bulletin from Mrs. John II. Lewis, Acting President, in place of Mrs. Valentine whom she said was convalescing in Maine. Perhaps you had the identical communication. The sum of the request is that she desires a delegation of women to interview our state legislators and ask them to vote to ratify the federal suffrage amendment, whether the question be acted upon at the special session, or in the regular session. It is also imperative that we act upon her suggestion immediately. Judging from past experience I do not believe we can get the committee together so that we might appear in person before Harry Byrd and Omps, but we can, at least, call on each individual member of the committee and get her signature attached to a petition. Then, too, we can give a list of the people of Winchester that have already signed our enrollment blanks and the legislators can see that suffrage is not without friends even in their own country. Please let me have your advice at once. Thank you, I am, Cordially yours, E. Virginia Smith
