- What does W.S. Allen say was the reason for the failure to publish the amendment vote in Iowa newspapers prior to the June 1916 vote? Who does he believe is at fault for that oversight?
- Before this letter was written, Iowan Carrie Chapman Catt called W.S. Allen's character into question. Why would W.S. Allen write about his support of women’s suffrage?
- Based on this letter from Allen, as well as "Letter from Anna Lawther of the Iowa Equal Suffrage Association to County Chairman," how important is publishing a proposed amendment in local newspapers ahead of the vote on them?
