New Hampshire Suffragettes Campaign for John B. Jameson, Pro-Suffrage Candidate for the U.S. Senate, 1918

[Concord, NH]: [1918].

Two items -- a handbill or small broadside (11.25" x 6") titled "What's Sauce for the Goose is Sauce for the Gander! Do in 1918 What You Were Urged to do in 1898. Stand by the Administration that is Waging the War!" and a circular (11.25" x 8.5") dated October 31, 1918 -- both urging the reader to vote for John B. Jameson for Senate. Neither piece makes explicit mention of suffrage, instead offering arguments based on Jameson's history and positions on other matters, primarily relating to the war. But Jameson was known as a sincere supporter of women's suffrage and--as the circular notes-- Moses had been noncommittal, saying "I decline to make any statement for or against any named measure prior to my election to the Senate." The handbill is signed (in print) by Mary I. Wood and Mrs. Winston Churchill (Mabel Harlakenden Hall), both prominent suffragists, and the circular is signed by about 65 women from across the state. Both items have a little toning at the edges and some small chips and tears; overall very good.
