Adams, F. G. The Women's Vote in Kansas. [Boston: Office of the Women's Journal, After April 1887].
8vo; 4 pp.; fragile, the two leaves separated from each other; very good.
Statistical tabulation, with much discussion and other matter, of how women voted in Kansas municipal elections in April, 1887. Bottom of last page contains an advertisement "special offer" for the Woman's Journal. Hon. F. G. Adams was Secretary of the Kansas State Historical Society, and the importance of the Kansas vote is succinctly stated by him:
How useful these figures may be made to be, workers for equal suffrage can judge. For myself while engaged in compiling them and in examining the newspapers in the search, and reading the discussion s in the canvass in their various forms and bearings, I have been most thoroughly impressed with the conviction that the people of Kansas, at the last spring election, completely solved the woman suffrage problem.
A scarce pamphlet with OCLC locating only 4 copies. Not in Kirchmar or Franklin.
