Women's suffrage tract from a speech by George Frisbie Hoar. Hoar had campaigned for rights of African-Americans and Native Americans in his long career as a politician, and here invokes Ralph Waldo Emerson and Chief Justice Salmon P. Chase, among others, to his cause. He does not back down from a rhetorical flourish of his own, however, writing "Our tree of constitutional liberty is an oaken growth which ripens its woods slowly, and adds its ring to ring though many a summer's heat and winter's cold; and therein consists its strength and promise of eternity."
