11 July, 1917
Miss Jane Addams,
800 South Halsted Street,
Your letter of 5 July with reference to a contribution to the Fresh Air Fund is received during Mr. Cyrus H. McCormick's absence with the Special Diplomatic Mission to Russia. Mr. McCormick is not expecting to return prior to autumn and will, therefore, be unable to give the matter his attention.
Very truly yours,
(sgd) Junia Williams Secretary.
