Letter from Lucy Stone, Newark, N[ew] J[ersey], to William Lloyd Garrison,  Sept[ember] 27
Lucy Stone writes to William Lloyd Garrison asking him to attend "a convention to be called in Cleveland Nov. 17th." She says that "there has been no event so important since the formation of the American Anti Slavery Soc[iety]" and promises that the names of those who already agreed to attend "should be a guarantee of good faith, right methods & means, and consistent advocacy & principles." Stone tells Garrison that "We need you oh so much!" and that "It is only 24 hours to Cleveland and a sleeping car makes it quite easy." The meeting Stone discusses led to the creation of the American Woman Suffrage Association.
