Text

My dear Mrs. Catt:

May I not express to you and your organization, as well as to the women of North Dakota, my congratulations upon the passage by the Legislature of that State of a bill granting to the women of the State the right to vote for presidential electors and for municipal officers? As you know, I have a very real interest in the extension of the suffrage to the women, and I feel that every step in this direction should be applauded.

Woodrow Wilson
