In T.M. Roberts' Distant Revolutions: 1848 and the challenge to American Exceptionalism it's said briefly (on p. 92 and without a citation/reference) that:
In 1848 Emma Willard, the director of the seminary that educated Stanton, sent a public letter to the French government appealing for women’s suffrage.
Wikipedia's page on Willard however states that
Despite her reputation today in women's history, Willard was not a supporter of the women's suffrage movement during the mid-19th century. Willard believed that women's education was a much more important matter.
These two claims seem (at least a bit) at odds with each other. So did Willard (really) send such a letter to the French government in 1848?
