Page 106 - A government 'of the people, by the people' cannot and does not exist in a Commonwealth in which one-half of its citizens are denied the right of Suffrage. The women of Kentucky are citizens of Kentucky, and there is no good or just reason why they should be refused the full and equal exercise of APPROVING THE SUFFRAGE BILL the sovereign right of every free people — the ballot.
Page 109 - BILL the sovereign right of every free people — the ballot. Every member of this General Assembly is unequivocally committed by his party's platform declaration, to cast his vote, and use his influence for the immediate enfranchisement of women in both nation and State.
