AbstractA letter to women's rights activist Mary A. Livermore to say that while he has other engagements, he will say a few words at the suffrage meeting; with a note below from Livermore directing the letter on to the person arranging the meeting. On Church of the Unity stationery with a depiction of the church building at head.
Minot Judson Savage (1841-1918) was an American Unitarian minister and author, and a popular preacher and speaker who affirmed the religious interpretation of evolution, humanitarian reform, and the spiritualistic belief in life after death. He served as minister of the Church of the Unity in Boston from 1874 to 1896 (See: Dictionary of American Biography. New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1928-1958, volume 16, pages 389-390). Mary A. Livermore (full name, Mary Ashton Rice Livermore; 1820-1905) was an American suffragist, social reformer, temperance activist, author, editor and lecturer on women's rights. Her husband Daniel P. Livermore (1818-1899) was a Universalist minister and also a temperance advocate. In about 1870, Livermore returned to her native Massachusetts after living for years in Chicago. She resided in Melrose, and she concentrated most of her activity on the lecture circuit until about 1895 when she retired. During this time she also served as president of the Massachusetts Woman Suffrage Association and the Massachusetts Woman's Christian Temperance Union (See: Encyclopedia Britannica online, viewed April 9, 2018).
