VERMONT EQUAL SUFFRAGE ASSOCIATION
OFFICE OF CHAIRMAN OF RATIFICATION
MRS. LILIAN H. OLZENDAM
October 10th, 1919
Mr. Fred Tewksbury
Dear Sir: --
As you have not responded to our appeal for your
signature on petition to Governor Clement for special session,
and as it is quite impossible for me to call personally upon the
275 men in the legislature in the short time at my disposal, I
am writing this to ask that you send same to me this week.
We already have a fine number of names in both Houses
but would like to give all our friends a chance to be represented
when Senator Howland and his committee calls upon the Governor
and presents the petition.
Vermont is needed for the 36th State in order to com¬
plete ratification before Presidential Primaries and we are
relying on your support. With thanks for former favors, I am,
Very truly yours,
Lilian H. Olzendam
Chairman of Ratification for Vermont
My record will show on your side.
If we are called to Montpelier I shall
vote as you wish. I would ask to be excused
from signing petition.
