What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

The success cif the Mat.saehusetts Woman Suffrage 'Bazaar of 1886 warrsets another for 1887. This year the New England Woman Suffrage Association invites the friends of fitly and all the states and tyrritortes to c;, -operate with them in a Bazaar for national purposes. The western states especially are calling upon the Treasury of the Ninerican Woman Suffrage Assoeiatien. for money to help them. By the Bazair ( i g 1886, in three months' time, we pet 1P6,378.78 into the State treasury. The west can furnish legislation if the east will furnish a part of the money needed. We shalt try to do it, for their suc- cess is ours. We want more Kansa: victories. The Bazaar will he held in Music Hall and Burnstead Hail, Boston, December 12-19, 1887. The basis of division is as follows; Each state will.receive for its own*tate treasury fifty per cent. of the net receipts from its own donations; the other fifty per cent, will be put into the American treasury, to be used, at. their discretion, in carrying mu nici- Li. e'r‘• pal woman suffrage bills and consti- tutional amendment!? in any of the Also a choice lot of - states and territories. Please assure us of your co-opera- tion by letter to our headenartere, 5 Park t : itreet. On the first of Sep- tember we shah move into beautiful rooms at 3 Park Street. We - invite --0:n ` i • - and expect all friends in the country ; to make these rooms their headquar- ters whenever they are in Boston. Comes and see us.
