Equal Suffrage League of Norfolk Norfolk, Virginia Jan. 23, 1915. Mrs. B.B. Valentine, Richmond, Va. My dear Mrs. Valentine:- Since my visit to Richmond I have been thinking the situation over, and I want you to know that you have my very earnest assurance of my co-operation. I regret very much that we could not go into details more fully, but my time was very limited as I left on the three o'clock train, and had an engagement for lunch at one o'clock. I expect to be in your city again within the next few weeks, and hope very much that I may be able to see you again. I have seen Mrs. Townsend since my return and told her that I had seen you, but made no mention of our talk regarding the condition here in Norfolk, as I though it best for the present to be cautious. You naturally realize that the situation is a delicate one, and needs to be handled in a tactful manner. If I can be of service to you I hope you will command me, as I have the interest of the cause very much at heart, and want more than anything to see an adjustment of things in a satisfactory manner. There is a possibility that we may leave Norfolk indefinitely within the next few months, but while I am in the field I am anxious to do what I can. Hoping to see you again in the near future, and with every good wish for your speedy recovery from the accident to your foot recently, I am, Most sincerely yours, Alice Lee Kate Sweringen 7/6 Redgate Ave. Norfolk Va.
