Jane Addams to Hamilton Holt, November 16, 1916


My dear Mr. Holt:

We were making rather vigorous preparations in order to secure a hearing for Mr. Richards in Chicago when a telegram from my cousin, Gilbert Beaver, said that Chicago could not be arranged for just now. We are disappointed, of course, but I hope you will do what you can to send missionaries to us whenever people come whose lips have been touched by the real fire.

With congratulations upon the growing value of the American Neutral Conference Committee, I am

Faithfully yours,

Mr. Hamilton Holt,
70 Fifth Avenue,
New York City.
