Walter Page Hines to Jane Addams, April 26, 1915

London -- 1.45 pm April 26. Miss Jane Addams. S.S. Noordam

The British authorities have completely suspended traffic with Holland for the present. There are no ships leaving [this] kingdom for Dutch ports and I greatly regret that is beyond my power to aid you in this matter. Even American diplomatic officers may not pass. I should be obliged if you would communicate this to your fellow passengers particularly to M [illegible] Z Doty & Mary Heaton Vorse who have telegraphed me similar request.

American Ambassador
