HEADQUARTERS, SIOUX FALLS.

Jan 18./10

My dear Mrs Breeden,

We have heard nothing further from Prof. Potter, Miss Shaw's letters to us about a month ago said we could expect Prof Potter here about the middle of February and that she Mrs P. would write us more definitely as to the time. If she is coming we should know it soon so as to advertise her over the state Judge Lindseys Bureau dates him, one address $150.00. I tried to get a reduction but was unsuccessful, he is offered to us first week in August, A bad time, and so I wrote them. We are holding the date open, Do you want him at that time and on those terms?

Our idea of trying to reach the people through the lecture courses, is well worth trying. If you will send or bring the names of Pierre lecturers, I will write them, or you can do so yourself. How would that do? I'm sure it will be quite as effectual, perhaps more so, than if I write. But if no more attention is paid to it than ex gov folk gave it here, I fear we will have wasted our time, He promised

[1910, Jan. 18]

to "speak a good word" but said, when he failed to do it, that he could not very well bring it in. But it seems to me that even tho' the lecture is a prepared oen, a man so used to speaking as the Governor could have managed it. He was kind (?) enough to say that he would return and lecture for E. S. which meant if we gave him $200.00 he will be pleased to come. It seems such a pity that we have so little money for our campaign and a greater pity that these fine speakers cannot five their services as well as their convictions to this movement. Just yesterday I received a communication from "The Civi Bureau" New York, offering Miss Arnold to us in March for [$1210.00?] single lecture. They cost so much. Do you think you would like to have her?

I see from your letter that you are still undecided as to what our state president means to do. To me she is an uncertain quantity. I so much wish I could have confidence in her. We must all regret that instead of going on in our work as we should, we are wasting valuable time. I do hope we can get to work in earnest after our meeting. You are coming are you not? There is much to talk over.

Very sincerely yours Cecily J. Tinsley

South Dakota Equal Suffrage Headquarters.

Sioux Falls, S. D.

Feb. 9, 1910.

Mrs. Jane Breedon, Pierre, S.D.

My dear Mrs. Breedon:-

The literature will go out on to-day's mail. Some of the leaflets asked for we have not at present, but will send the number desired, and hope you will like those substituted. Am glad you are doing well in Pierre, and hope that town can be carried for Suffrage.

Mrs. Maude Walker cannot take the chairmanship of the 1910 League, owing to the fact that she expects to leave the state for an indefinite time in a few months. Could your daughter take this up? I suppose it would have to be worked through correspondence.

Mrs. Thorp is still here assisting at Headquarters and doing suffrage work in the town. We have very encouraging reports from Rose Bower. She says she is very busy and happy, and has organized suffrage committees at Summit and Waubay. Miss Penfield talked in the Presbyterian Church Sunday evening, and made a good impression. She leaves today on her northern route.

Hoping to hear from you soon, I am,

Very sincerely yours,

C. J. Tinsley
