I went to a suffrage country fair at [illegible]hall Sta. near here, in Va. & I see the need more & more for workers, who have the spirit & I feel that those of us who have, ought to work (have to work) harder than ever to make up for those who are half hearted - how can they be! Fairfax Co. seems practically dead & it is pathetic to see the few scattered workers & how hard they work. Mine was the only petition on the grounds & I got 20 names in a short time. I tried to impress on your League the importance of getting names this year - I do feel it so! Mrs. Brooke is going to have a street meeting in N. News soon. We are placed in the position of begging the men for our just dues, so we have to reach them some way & they will not come to us, therefore we must go to them. We have been going to the meetings of the dif. labor unions with our petitions & have done good work. Just now I am addressing envelopes for the Con. Union! It all helps! Excuse the length of this, but I know I am talking to a kindred spirit. Cordially (Miss) Ellen Robinson.
