Notes from Becky Newman and Anthony Manousos

Dear Editor:
Thank you for the wonderful piece in today's Western Friend newsletter (8/5/2023) on John Greenleaf Whittier!

I plan to use the quote from "The Poor Voter on Election Day" in some way in the election-information section of the website of my chapter of The League of Women Voters in 2024!

To-day, alike are great and small,
The nameless and the known;
My palace is the people’s hall,
The ballot-box my throne!” . . .

from “The Poor Voter on Election Day” by John Greenleaf Whittier (1852)

Dear Editor:
Loved the piece you shared today about John Greenleaf Whittier's political activism. Years ago, when Kathleen and I lived in Whittier, I wrote an article about Whittier's activism, which published on my blog.
