ily dear LUss Tames:
Your letter received. We are sending to you uKler
separate cover the August and September numbers of Progress which yu
kindly loaned to us. I owe you an apology for not returning them sooner.
s bsoribed for the riagazine askinL them to send Le the August and Sept-
ember numbers but it must   vb      the       hem all up for they only
sent me the October nmber.
We do not feel at all dscouraged at the outcome of the
election. I had expected the suffrage wmendment would be defeated hy
at least two votes to one and I was not very much disappointed. We
realize that it is necessary in u movement of this kind to carry on a
campaign of education and I could see that it was impossible with the
comparatively smal nimiber of workers and the small amount of fninds at
hand to reach all parts of the State. I learn of many localities in
Counties adjoining this one which had not been touched at Ull. I think
you carried on an excellent campaign from headquartero. The w1men out
throu!h the State who were looking after the loca work were not      r±no-
ed cmpaigners as a rule and .noy of them did not realize the nount of
work that was necessary In order to get a fair hearing on a question of
this kind. I was surprised almoet'daily throughout the cempaiýi at
te
ability manifested by the managers in your office along the line of practi-
cal campaigning. If you could have schooled yOur local workers s, that
they could have done eqially goo work the results would hav been dif-
ferent.
