"....Your name has been sent to us as a Pioneer and one worthy of a Distinguished Service Certificate. We are mailing this to you by the same mail. We are aware that every stroke made for the cause by each one of the workers in all the sixty years which lie behind us has formed the sum-total of effort which has produced the present result. With congratulations that you have lived to see this day, and the fond hope that you may live to enjoy the blessings of full enfranchisement for many a year to come, I am Yours very cordially, Carrie Chapman Catt President
