You write of a Clarendon and a Falls Church League, I had some idea of a general league, called the Alexandria County League, as there are no incorporated towns, just small settlements all under one rule, so I had it in mind that it would be stronger and perhaps more effective to bring all together under one head. To meet more women and gain their confidence I have accepted the Presidency of St. George's Auxiliary and the Secretaryship of the Guild, also to demonstrate that a woman who believes in equal suffrage may remain a churchwoman and still have time to attend to her domestic duties.
