My Dear, Dear Mrs. Stanford -

It isn't because I haven't thought of you my precious friend -- that my pen has not talked ever so often -- these last months of your most heroic struggle -- my heart has gone out to you in love, sympathy and joy -- every time I have read an item on your great strength and wisdom in taking up the wonderful work! how well I remember one of my last talks with your sainted husband -- when he said - when I go out everything will be left with my wife -- exactly as everything is mine now -- She understands everything about my business -- I admired the grand man when he said that -- but I didn't fully believe it possible for mortal man to practially do it -- until within these last months when every word that has come to me -- shows how perfectly you are invested with equal and full power --

Oh I do rejoice -- because it enables you to be of the greatest possible help to the great work you twain so truly one undertook -- I am in jumping haste -- going to the train for the place marked on the enclosed --

My dear and only ____ this date -- will dispatch a set of the History and formal report -- and when this big event of mass meetings -- and the Washington Convention are ended -- I want to make up a big package of Women's Rights books for your most splendid eminent Library -- Enclosed, too, is the Call for our 20th Wash. Con. Do you my precious, noble sister -- write us a letter -- and make us all feel you are with us in spirit as I know you and your darling husband and son are always --

Lovingly

Susan B. Anthony

Love to dear Mrs. Cooper --
