Notes
-  Discussion in three papers on Elihu Root's 1894 address include Springfield Republican reprint of Anne Fitzhugh Miller's letter; Harold Shafter Howard of Newburg argues that suffrage is a spiritual right that should be decided at bar of justice; Minnie T. Mauer of Waterloo disagrees with Anne Fitzhugh Miller that Root has changed. She agrees with him that unrestricted suffrage is dangerous because it would allow uneducated as well as educated women to vote.
-  Extract of Elihu Root's New York Peace Dinner speech implying that women can influence peace without suffrage
