95 [letterhead with seal:] Treasury Department United States Customs Service Port of New York

Office of the Collector

September 12, 1917.

Miss J. S. Jennings [Julia Somerville Jennings], Chairman, National Woman's Party, 209 East Franklin Street, Richmond, Va.

Dear Miss Jennings:

Please extend to the unenfranchised women of Virginia, and the members of your party, my sincere gratitude for their thoughtful, and generous letter.

To make the situation emphatic, will you not get every man and woman you can reach to send individual telegrams to the President, their Senators and Congressman urging the immediate passage of the Federal Suffrage Amendment, as a war measure and a measure of justice?

Your faithfully, Dudley Field Malone
