    Transcription of Lucy Stone Letter

    May 8 1882

    Editor [Yankee Blade]

    Dear Sir

    Would it not add to the interest of your paper, if it should contain each week a column of news items in regard to what women are doing to help themselves and others? Such a column would be widely read especially by women.

    I am willing to have such a column prepared each week, and to put it for convenience into the form of a printed slip, and mail to you regularly on such day of each week as you may prefer, provided you will give it a place in your paper, and [send a copy to] the Woman's Journal.

    This column might be called "Woman's Column" or "What Women are Doing" or "Concerning Women" or otherwise as you may prefer - I enclose a stamp for reply, and am yours respectfully

    Lucy Stone
