My dear Mrs. Perkins:
I take great pleasure in [referring] your request for literature on the subject of "Why Should Women Vote?" to the Secretary of the Woman's Suffrage Party, Des Moines, Iowa. If you will write to her, I am sure she will be very glad to give you information on the general subject of why women should vote, and information with [reference] to the situation particularly in Iowa. According to the reports I hear, the situation is pretty hopeful in Iowa, so I hope that you, like your Illinois sisters, may be able to vote for the next President. We shall be watching Iowa with the greatest interest next June.
If I can be of any help to you, please write me again.
