Edmund G. Galin,

Dr Sir,

Your letter with petition signed by 205 persons & with $2,08 in money enclosed has been received. We thank you truly for what you have done for us as well as for your cordial sympathy. We shall not forward the petition to Congress till the middle of Jany as we think from present appearances we shall have a large addition to our members by that time, after that time, if other petitions are sent in as we hope there will be, they will be forwarded to Washington during the whole of the Session of Congress. The work is indeed going bravely on in our Country, but it will not

do for the friends of freedom to slacken in any of their efforts.

The President is firm & holds by his Proclamation, we must create such a public sentiment that Congress cannot resist recognizing it as the voice of the people, therefore we think our petition not unnecessary.

We thank you for the money enclosed, our expenses have been very heavy in the start for stationery, office rent, printing, postage & c. & we looked to the returns of the penny subscriptions to help us in this way. All have not responded but many have & to them we owe our thanks.

Yours in the hope of universal freedom
Susan B. Anthony.

Your letter with petition signed by 205 persons & with $2,08 in money enclosed has been received. We thank you truly for what you have done for us as well as for your cordial sympathy. We shall not forward the petition to Congress till the middle of Jany as we think from present appearances we shall have a large addition to our members by that time, after that time, if other petitions are sent in as we hope there will be, they will be forwarded to Washington during the whole of the Session of Congress. The work is indeed going bravely on in our Country, but it will not do for the friends of freedom to slacken in any of their efforts.

The President is firm & holds by his Proclamation, we must create such a public sentiment that Congress cannot resist recognizing it as the voice of the people, therefore we think our petition not unnecessary.
