Yes, young man, you shall have my autograph and with it the hope that you will do all in your power to help establish the just principle of equality to woman, civil and political;- for it is only through civil & political equality with man that woman can possibly attain pecuniary and social equality, and more desirable than all else, moral equality - Moral power to bring man up to her ideal standard of purity -
Let your first vote, therefore, be for woman suffrage-
Susan B. Anthony
Rochester - N. Y. Aug. 19/71
