Lesson 2: Document 11 Transcript



Hon. J. H. Bankhead
	Washington D.C.

Dear Sir-
	Being an Alabama
woman I want you to 
know that Alabama women
are against conscription.
If you represent Alabama
ideas in Congress you
will vote against conscription,
Besides those who insist
on conscription show to the
world that they know
that America's heart is 
not in this conflict.
(p. 2)
Munitions, supplies & money
we want to send to the
allies but not one Alabama
boy to his grave in this
war-not one Alabama
mother's heart should be
broken because of your 
vote.
	Very truly
	(Mrs.) Neil R. Wallace
