Susan B. Anthony & Elizabeth Cady Stanton: A Peace with Each Other

More of Elizabeth Cady Stanton’s daughter Margaret’s observations of life with ECS & SBA at ECS’s home in Tenafly, NJ: ECS:SBA--3asmall“In the evening, with a bright wood fire on the hearth, they plot and plan, in their easy chairs, work enough ahead to keep them busy, if they should live to be the age of Methuselah. I notice they never contend in the evenings . . . .Often we read aloud the scourgings and criticisms they get in letters and papers, at which they cooly laugh, no matter from what quarter they come. So long as they are at peace with each other, what others think or say seems to trouble them very little.”
