25 October 1882 — Daily Yellowstone Journal

+++++“A Connecticut girl recently admitted as a full-fledged lawyer has her hands full of business, the little state seems to lead in the production of wonderful women. She [Connecticut] has already given to the world eight female circus riders, a modern Borgia, the Smith sisters of ‘Cow’ fame . . ., and Jennie Cramer, and now caps the climax with a female lawyer, who wears ready-made broadcloth pantaloons. Next.”
