ALS : Autograph Letter SignedBRADT, Susan S. 3 page Autograph Manuscript Signed and dated 1853, disbound from a friendship album. The first page is comprised of a handwritten version of Frank Walter's poem "Woman's Power." In her hand in part Bradt writes, "If woman's weak then what is strong? / For all things bow to her / To her men's powers all belong…Woman, a fearful power is thine / The mission to the given / Requires a strength almost divine." The poem's lines call women to recognize that their individual strength comes with a responsibility to aid each other and change the world. Additional 2 pages contain poems addressed to "Matt." An important manuscript in very good condition.
