Dearest Miss Addams,
Your very welcome letter of Oct. 16th reached me yesterday and made me very happy. I will not try to answer it yet but will just acknowledge its receipt and thank you.
Our Nov. 1 balance is ↑65,743.98↓ francs, and we began with 66,000. This means we have in six months spent ↑236.02↓ francs over and above English and Norwegian contributions of ↑9,952 and 8801↓ ↑[respondence]↓ with some smaller wind falls. We must remember that the big expense of the Zurich report is still ahead. ↑See P.S.↓
Still I think this is not a dark outlook.
Mrs. Swanwick writes raising the question of the annual meeting of the Execution Committee as required by our statutes. She desires to know beforehand as she has to plan long in advance. She suggests April or May. I think early in May would be best as matter is not settled till then, but if it were "earlyish in April" Mrs. Swanwick might stay on a week and "do some chores" for us, she writes.
Yours, as you know,
Emily Balch [signed] [page 2]
