T.C. Van Eaton Runs for Office (1912)

T.C. Van Eaton ran for Congress on the Republican ticket back in 1912. His wife, Nellie was right behind him. However, she was a mother first.

I’m not sure who this letter was specifically addressed to, but she tells the woman she will be T.C.’s secretary and communicate to the women what’s going on in Congress, but right now she has a child she needs to take care of and won’t “appear in the campaign”.
