Ellis Meredith, U.S. suffragist. As quoted in History of Woman Suffrage, vol. 4, ch. 14, by Susan B. Anthony and Ida Husted Harper (1902).
At the twenty-sixth annual convention of the National Woman Suffrage Association, held February 15-20, 1894, in Washington, D.C. Meredith was a delegate from Colorado, which had recently enfranchised women. A "very small" person, she "looked up brightly at a tall Maryland lady, who was congratulating her" and said this. The incident was reported by Alice Stone Blackwell, secretary of the convention, in a report in the Woman's Journal, which she edited.
