    In this letter to Anna Louise Strong, Sophie L. W. Clark, the president of the Woman's Legislative Council of Washington, expresses sympathy with Strong after Strong's recall from the Seattle School Board. She believes that the voters' decision to recall Strong will do a long-term injury to the political aims of the state's women. Clark encourages Strong with the belief that Strong (and her father, Sydney Strong) has done good work in service to God, and she tells Strong how glad she is to see Strong's work defending good against evil in an ongoing struggle. Clark concludes by referencing the second chapter of the Book of Daniel -- the stone that strikes the feet of clay -- and calls herself a "comrade" of Strong's. less
