January 11, 1915. Mrs. Jessie E. Townsend, 245 West Freemason Street, Norfolk, VA. Dear Mrs. Townsend: Yours of January 8th did not reach me until his morning, on my return to the city. I am glad to know that you are a friend of my sister, Mrs. Clarke, and that you hold her in such high regard. She and myself attended last week the sessions of the National Popular Government League. My sister and myself often have discussions on the subject of Woman Suffrage, and she has not yet succeeded in convincing me that it is my duty to advocate Woman Suffrage. Very truly yours,

Jno. Garland Pollard
