First edition, both volumes inscribed by Susan B. Anthony to American lecture manager, James B. Pond. Volume 1 is inscribed on the front free endpaper: "Yes indeed you shall have | the pen-tracks of memory of the | olden days, with the best wishes for | the present and future vouchsafe to you and | your good wife of | your sincere friend & coworker | Susan B. Anthony | Rochester, N. Y. | July 30, 1900."

The inscription in the second volume is couched in stronger feminist language: "With one entire half of the | citizens of this Republic still | disenfranchised — there is plenty | of room for heroic souls and | their most earnest & combined | efforts to bring our government into | harmony with its grand theory of Equal | Rights for all —at least so thinks | Your old friend | Susan B. Anthony | Rochester, N. Y. | July 30, 1900."

James Pond also counted among his clients Samuel Clemens, Arthur Conan Doyle, Henry M. Stanley, and Henry Ward Beecher. In his 1900 reminiscences, Eccentricities of Genius, Pond described Anthony as "one of the ablest women orators." His close relationship with Anthony suggests that Pond was a strong supporter of the women's suffrage movement, as he had been of the abolitionist movement. His abilities as a lecture manager enabled the suffragists to carry their message throughout the country.
