Summary: Effie Frost of Junction City, Geary County, wrote this letter to Lucy Johnston, President of the Kansas Equal Suffrage Association, about a recent state election in which women in Kansas gained universal suffrage. Frost was disappointed that the Democratic candidates were elected, but she felt confident that many Democrats did support suffrage. Frost was particularly concerned that women use the vote to destroy "all vice breeding places," mentioning a pool hall in particular. Frost also informs Johnston of her efforts to keep alive a children's Sunday school class in Verdi, Kansas
