Letter from Clara Barton to May Wright Sewall.
Title: Letter from Clara Barton to May Wright Sewall.
Description: Barton sends thanks for the four volumes sent (possibly the records of the International Council of Women published by Sewall in 1909). She goes on to praise the life and work of Susan B. Anthony. Clara Barton was nicknamed "the angel of the battlefield" for her work helping wounded soldiers during the Civil War. She then spent the following four years assisting with identification of prisoners who died at Andersonville. In 1881, Miss Barton founded the American Red Cross.
