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.
