Around this are arranged photographs of forty members of the present Assembly, with the words “N. Y. State Legislators in 1885.”  Beneath these are portraits of six ladies, Mrs. Gage, Mrs. Howell, Mrs. Rogers, Mrs. Chapin, Miss Stoneman, and myself.  Below these is inscribed, “and those who ought to be in 1886.”  These cards, they tell me, are having a large sale.
