Letter(s)

Scarce Letter
Composed Three Years Before Her Run for the Presidency
Woodhull, Victoria. Autograph letter signed, "Victoria Woodhull," to Mr. Gage, July 30, 1873; one leaf of plain paper, recto only, creased where folded.
In this one page letter written from 48 Broad Street, New York, three years before her run for the highest office in America, Woodhull writes to introduce Gage - we assume feminist and abolitionist reformer Frances Dana Barker Gage - to "the very able reformer and my esteemed friend Professor R. N. Hume of this city. He proposes to enter the lecture field, and anything that you can do to help him before the public will be a service rendered the Cause, in which all of us are engaged. Very truly, Victoria Woodhull."
Woodhull letters are genuinely scarce; correspondence of this vintage, in this condition, mentioning "the Cause," quite simply do not exist.
