Feb. 2-1915. My dear Mrs. Townsend:- Your very interesting letter was read by me and I will forward it on to Mrs. Valentine. You are certainly to be congratulated on securing headquarters, and the balcony feature is splendid. I am enclosing a clipping from one of our papers (sent by me) concerning Mrs. Bullock. I got this information from a booklet she sent me and from a letter written by her. I do not know her personally. Of course we are hoping that the meeting we are planning will be a success in every way. How about her for your Saturday opening? Her address is Waverly, Va., RFD No. 3. I believe Mrs. Clarke would accept an invitation to speak for you sometime, if you so desire, though I would suggest an indoor meeting as her voice hasn't much volume. Will speak to Mrs. Bosher and will let you know about her. We have been too poverty stricken to invest in suffrage novelties, I am sorry to say, and it is best for you to get yours from the National, though we appreciate your willingness to purchase from State Headquarters, and wish we could supply our branch leagues. Personally, I think the idea a grand one to have a labor union officer an officer of your league, and will ask Mrs. Valentine to write you her views as soon as I can hear from her. Understand that her address in Sumter, S.C. added 250 members to that league. Yours very truly, Alice B. Taylor Mrs. Bullock does not charge for speaking but will expect her expenses paid.
