To Whom it may concern:
This is to notify you that I am running for Senatoress on the Suffragette ticket.
I believe in a reduction of the tariff on Paris gowns. I believe there should be a cut in sheath gowns.
I believe in a reduction of the duties on women.
Correspondence solicited from the trusts. I'm just 16.
