"Should woman be given the Suffrage?"

 transcribed by G. Douglas Clarke and Carol M. Clarke

Yes!  She is a free, moral agent, accountable to God, and not to man.

The only way to dispose of the present evils which exist under the present rule, and is the ruin of our offsprings, is to cast the vote.

To vote, or not to vote, is a question which woman alone should have the right to decide.

We believe it a God-given right and the enacting of laws which refuses this right, is tyranny, and oppression.

In order to suppress these evils, we claim the right to vote our principles.
