Dear Miss Addams,
You have never done anything else which I was so grateful for as for that address before The Quadrangle Club. After reading it in "Charities" and before getting your letter I was feeling that it must put before the Chicago public, or at least some part of it, perhaps the City Club. It certainly is a [page 2] most needed utterance, and I am very glad you and Hull House have the courage to stand by your convictions and for the immigrants who are at such disadvantage here with us, and especially glad of your strong plea for freedom of speech. I thank you for "Charities" and am passing it on to Mr. [Grinstead?].
