Yes, young man, you shall have the autograph of the woman citizen of the State of New York who first registered and voted for national and state officers under the guarantees of the 14th Amendment - and yesterday was arrested for illegal voting by United States officers -

of the equal political rights of women citizens is in fair way to be decided by the judicial powers of the Nation.
Respectfully yours
Susan B. Anthony
