Since the debate on equal suffrage between ex-Mayor Osborne and Miss Blackwell, at Geneva, N. Y., a class of college students who listened to the debate have been writing essays and arguing the question among themselves; and Prof Muirhead at length suggested that Miss Anne Fitzhugh Miller be invited to the last meeting, May 15. On that occasion, after passing judgment on the efforts of the students Miss Miller asked the privilege of speaking, and said, in substance:-
The question, “Should women vote?” is, to my mind a very great question, and one worthy of our deepest investigation and highest intelligence. Before we can come to any satisfactory opinion upon it, we should be sure that we understand the true meaning of the vote or ballot, and also the nature of woman, and that is difficult — even for women.
