Boston, Mass., Aug. 26, 1916.

The President:

The Northeastern Federation of Woman’s Clubs in convention assembled in
the City of Boston, Mass., Aug. 23-25, representing 6,000 women of this great
republic, calls your attention to the lynching of colored Anerican citizens
of the United States, both men women and children. We think "the United
States should stand for something higher" than such barbaric amusement and we
respectfully call upon you as Chief Executive, to break your silence and to
protect all loyal American citizens alike.

Susie I. Amos, Secretary,
Northeastern Federation
