Susan B. Anthony Typed & Signed Letter Dated March 27, 1900:
$2,000

Typewritten letter dated, March 27 1900, with hand addressed envelope with postmark of March 28 1900.
Letter is addressed to Teresa M. Kingsley of Buffalo New York. Letter is typed on 8.25x11 in. stationary with Rival Bond watermark.
An early adopter, Ms. Anthony used a front strike Underwood typewriter that can be seen today at The National Susan B. Anthony Museum & House.
Letter was folded to fit into the 4.25x5.25 in enveloped. Letter shows some wear along right edge with tiny nick and bend, and a corner fold at top left. Otherwise it is bright, clean and signature is in ink and quite legible.
Envelope appears to be hand addressed in ink by Susan B. Anthony. Envelope shows wear along edges and corners, one small stain below stamp. Susan B. Anthony's hand written name appears clearly above the postmark, however her address is slightly covered by the "Rochester NY March 27" postmark.
Both items are suitable for framing together for a nice association.
Letter states:"My Dear Friend, --Your letter of January 18th, inviting me to address your Federation for the education and organization of Western New York, is before me.I think I must have written you at that time that it was impossible for me to accept, because I must very soon leave for Washington.I hope you had at your meeting, a large audience and good papers.I enclose a few souvenirs of my birthday celebration in Washington.I trust all the women connected with your literary and education conference, are interested in the question of women's enfranchisement, and that you all belong to the suffrage clubs or your respective towns.Wishing all of your clubs the best success, I am,Very sincerely yours,Susan B. Anthony
P.S.I have sent souvenirs to all of your officers."
