This small document, a letter of the newspaper editor, poet and abolitionist Theodore Tilton to Charles Sumner, represents one of the early appeals for woman's suffrage, citing the 14th and 15th amendments as applicable to woman's right to vote. An academic lawyer and a powerful orator, Sumner was the leader of the anti-slavery movement in Massachusetts and a leader of the Radical Republicans in the US Senate during the Civil War.
