Description Written on the letterhead of Charles R. Skinner, Superintendent of the Department of Public Education of the State of New York, for whom she was the secretary. Aspinwall Hilton is concerned that "our leaders in the suffrage movement were very unwise to antagonize [Mr. Skinner] one of the truest and most useful friends we have ever had in our State." Commented that she had met Miss Anthony on a St. Lawrence steamer and was "pleased to find her as reasonable, clear-headed, and conservative as ever."
