First edition of this fragile pamphlet; NUC records five copies. A rare account of the famed controversy that yielded an obscenity conviction for Woodhull. In her paper, she printed details of the elicit affair between Theodore Tilton's wife Elizabeth and Henry Ward Beecher, commending Beecher for the liaison but criticizing his secrecy and hypocrisy. In addition to statements by Beecher and both Tiltons, their mutual correspondence, Tilton's cross-examination, and the committee's report, this prints two of Woodhull's letters to Beecher about her persecution by his sisters for her admitted free love practices.
