Eleanor Daggett Karsten to Lillie Price Hounsell, March 18, 1916


March 18th, 1916.

My dear Miss Hounsell:

Miss Sears, to whom your letter to Miss Addams was referred, has sent to this office your letter of September 15th and it gives me the greatest pleasure to send you under separate cover some additional copies of Miss Addams' Hearing before the House Committee on Military Affairs, and also some other literature which we have for distribution in this office. I am including in this some material on the subject of military drill in the high-schools. We are very much concerned just now in Chicago about this question, which is now just before the Board and are circulating the enclosed Resolution in all the clubs of the city which we can reach, securing signatures opposing the introduction of military drill. The tendency toward military drill in the schools is being felt all over the country, and I am sure you may come in contact with it in Oregon.

We have just sent for some little pamphlets on the subject, and as soon as they are received, I will send you copies of those.

I am also sending you a copy of the Official Report of the International Congress of Women at The Hague. Our charge for this is fifty cents.

If there is any other way in which we can be of help, please call upon us. We will be very glad to be of assistance.

Very sincerely yours,

Office Secretary

Miss Lillie Price Hounsell,
R.D. II,
Hood River, Oregon.
