Susan B. Anthony: Happy Birthday: Did You Say This?

Copyright 2012, CABS for Reflections From the Fence

I found this quote in the February 22, 1896 issue of the Michigan Messenger (published in Adrian, Lenawee County, Michigan).  I have no proof it is from THE Susan B. Anthony, but, really, is there another Susan B??

"Susan B. Anthony says it is all right for a woman to 'pop the question' to a man she loves, whether its leap year or not. Now that woman as become a bread winner, she is no longer in a position to wait for proposals."

According to the Wikipedia page on Susan B. Anthony, she was born February 15, 1820  and died March 13, 1906.
