The front page has a two line, two column heading: "RATIFICATION OF SUFFRAGE MAY BE RECONSIDERED," with the subhead: "Such is the Statement of Speaker Walker of the Lower Branch of the Tennessee Legislature." A related front page article has: "Tennessee Still Doubtful." The 19th Amendment would be adopted into law in just 8 days.
Other news of the day with period advertising is found throughout.
Complete in 10 pages, very minor margin wear, brittle, but in good condition (for the era). It must be handled with care.
