Postcard to George Sheldon regarding trolley debate

This postcard from E.L.C. [Emma Lewis Coleman] to George Sheldon follows up on her letter and petition (L99.120 and L99.133) regarding the route of the trolley. She asks that Sheldon add names and information in anticipation of the hearing on "Thursday." Miss Coleman and Miss Baker, as well as Mr. Sheldon, were adamantly opposed to the idea of tracks and an electric railway running through the center of their town. The two women wrote letters, circulated petitions, and spoke out expressing their views, although women in this country had not yet received the vote and they recognized that their opinions were taken less seriously than that of men.
