Transcription of letter from Mary Low to Louise Coburn, 10/16/1890

[Written in margin: If you could conveniently let me now where you send your copies, it might prevent “collusion” if I should send any more. Besides I should like to know the destination of every copy, if possible. (In haste) M.L.C.]

Waterville, Oct. 16. /90.

Dear Miss Coburn,
I feel very grateful to
you for your generosity in helping us out
of our dilemma. I sent you 12 copies of the
protest and will send six more tom.
if I have no other disposal to make
of them “for the good of the cause”. That
will leave 20 cts. to pay the postage to
you. Will that be satisfactory?

I have sent one to A.P. Marble of Wor-
cester, Mass, one to Prof. Butler of North-
western Univ., one to Mr. Seward our min-
inster, one to Dr. Howard of my class. Mr. C.
sent one to Gov. Burleigh. Gen. Butler. Gen.
H.M. Plaisted and Mr. Briggs. Miss Par-
menter and Miss Sawtelle will, I think,

mail them to class-mates or to personal
friends. There is a Mrs. Barrons on the School
Board of Boston to whom Mr. Seward wishes
a copy sent. Mr. Lane has one, Prof. Hall
showed it to Dr. Spencer and family.

So I think you will not be likely to
duplicate our names if you send to any
other than these I have mentioned.

The latest development is that Dr. Small
has appealed to the Freshman class to help
him carry out his new scheme. What do
you think of that. Looks rather Small,
doesn’t it? Oh! dear dear! It is so hard
for me to keep still and let this thing go
on, but I suppose it is the only way now.

Mrs. Prof. Foster spoke with me the other
day, expressing her sympathy with the protest
“You have left your record behind you,” she
says. “That can’t be changed or altered. “Co-
education will go on in other places.” Let me
hear from you occasionally. Sincerely M.L. Carver
