NEW YORK TIMES, Feb. 10 and March 30 1875
* Virginia Minor Supreme Court case
* Women's suffrage
A pair of issues, with the Feb. 10 issue having on page 8 an article headed: "Woman Suffrage" "The Question in the Supreme Court of the United States - The Case of Mrs. Minor Against a Register of Voters in Missouri". The report gives some specifics on the case argued before the Supreme Court on Feb. 9.
The March 30 issue has on page 2: "United States Supreme Court" "Opinion In the Minor-Hoppersatt Case--A Question Involving the Right of Women to Vote" which reports the Court's decision, against Virginia Minor. This report takes nearly an entire column.
See the hyperlink for the particulars. Virginia Minor unsuccessfully argued that the Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution gave women the right to vote.
Ten & 12 pages respectively, evenly toned, very minor margin wear, nice condition . Should be handled with care.
