In her introduction to The Notebook of Elbert Hubbard, his wife Alice heaps words of praise on her husband, Elbert Hubbard. She speaks about slavery as well as the rights of women. Here are her words:
"He is like Lincoln in that he would free all mankind. He, too, knows that there can be no free man on the earth so long as there is one slave. Elbert Hubbard sees, too, that just so long as there is one woman who is denied any right that man claims for himself, there is no free man; that no man can be a superior, true American, so long as one woman is denied her birthright of life, liberty and happiness".
