L.I. Society, Daughters of Revolution, Heard Mrs. Suffren

17 Nov 1910
Her Arguments Caused Many of Those Present at Flatbush Meeting to Become Suffragists

"Suffrage arguments were presented to the Long Island Society, Daughters of the Revolution, by Mrs. Martha Wentworth Suffren, yesterday afternoon, at the home of Mrs. Russell Benedict, 104 Buckingham road.

"'Daughters of the Revolution,' she said, 'ought to have some desire for their own freedom," and all were cordially invited to add their names then and there to the Suffrage lists. Many of those present accepted Mrs. Suffren's invitation and became enthusiastic supporters of the Suffrage cause.'"
