Description Emily Howland was an abolitionist, philanthropist, educator, and suffragist. She writes letter directly to Mariana Wright Chapman about how she does not believe that politicians will care about passing their legislation, unless they can get constituents to become passionate about women's suffrage. She also mentions a Mrs. Potter, possibly Elizabeth Herndon Potter, who has a "good suffragist for a husband" and asks Chapman to remind Mrs. Potter about her.
