Edward Clark Marsh to Jane Addams, January 29, 1919


January 29, 1919.

Miss Jane Addams,
Hull House,
800 South Halsted St.,
Chicago, Ill.

My dear Miss Addams: --

Last Fall I asked you if you had anything ready for publication in a book and you were so good as to tell me that you might have something within the next few months.

I don't want to importune you but I think it would be a very good thing for all of us if you could publish something just now. Doubtless you know the state of the public mind better than I do. I believe the country is gradually coming back to a saner attitude than it has shown of late and you could help very greatly in this direction.

The attacks that have been made on you must have hurt you but I hope you have not given them greater importance than they deserve. Your place is secure and with the swing in sentiment which seems now to be taking place, a new publication would, I think have a most wholesome and beneficial effect.

I hope you will not mind my considering your work somewhat from this point of view and indeed that you will yourself give some thought to your best interests with your public.

I am

Very sincerely yours,

Edward C. Marsh [signed]
