Eleanor Daggett Karsten to Clara W. Bourne, September 7, 1917


September 7th, 1917.

My dear Mrs. Bourne:

Miss Addams is out of the city and will not return for some time and in the meantime I am writing to tell you that under separate cover I am sending you a copy of an address which Miss Addams recently gave in Chicago, and several other publications which have been published by the Woman's Peace Party, which I think will be of interest to you.

I suppose you know The New Republic which in the last few months has been such a comfort to all of us.

I am also sending you a copy of a reading list which our National Secretary, Mrs. Mead, arranged for summer reading and which will, perhaps, suggest something to you.

I should be very glad indeed to hear from you again in reference to our work. We are not taking a very radical stand at this time, but feel that in keeping our membership together and interested in international questions, we may be contributing quite a bit toward keeping alive a spirit of Internationalism which is so essential if the settlement which comes at the end of the war is to be a permanent one.

I very much hope that I may hear from you again.

Very sincerely yours,

Office Secretary

Mrs. Clara Bourne,
Hugo, Oregon.
