HAPPY BIRTHDAY, DAVID WRIGHT!
The husbands of the organizers of the First Women's Rights Convention celebrated birthdays, too!
David Wright and Martha Wright shared similar opinions on temperance and the abolition of slavery. The Wrights opened their home as a station on the Underground Railroad, and they provided assistance to Harriet Tubman and several other freedom seekers.
David Wright and Martha Wright agreed to disagree on the subject of women's rights. In 1855 Martha Wright wrote, "If you'll believe it, my husband will not sign the petition for Suffrage."
David Wright created a successful law practice which required travel away from home. Martha Wright's visits to her sister, Lucretia Mott, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, resulted in time spent away from each other. Both expressed their love for each other in their letters. In 1857 David Wright wrote to Martha Wright, "I commenced the study of law and soon became acquainted
Birthday celebrations are seen as happy occasions spent with family. On the observance of David Wright's birthday, we can recall past birthdays with our families and friends.
