Jennie Anderson Froiseth founded the Anti-Polygamy Standard in 1880 with like-minded women from the Ladies’ Anti-Polygamy Society of Utah. The monthly paper was published from 1880 to 1883 as one of the local efforts to oppose polygamy. Froiseth actively sought new supporters, both within Utah and from across the country.
In this letter, Froiseth appeals for help in advertising the Anti-Polygamy Standard in Omaha newspapers. She wrote, “We are so desirous of interesting the women of the country in our work, but cannot afford to send out as many free copies of the paper as we would like, consequently we thought if we could get such notices spread widely, it would attract the attention of many women who would send for a copy of the paper.”
