Dear Miss Addams,
I enclose herewith the book of which I spoke to you which, although a novel, gives one the atmosphere of West Ireland, & the growth of the most recent struggle. I hope you won't mind it being my own copy, as these books are unattainable in England.
[written in left margin] ↑The writer is now in prison, & all the developments he mentions in this book, & many [extensions?] are now burned down.↓
May I send with it my very great gratitude for all your kindness when I was in America. I would have written earlier, but I was rushed away to a strike almost as soon as I arrived in England, & have only just finished it. I am crossing to Ireland [tonight] for trade union business. If it would be any use, I will send on a report of recent developments in the struggle.
Mrs Robinson & I have addressed some meetings, at least Mrs Robinson has done more than I have, & everyone has been greatly interested in the work of the Commission. We are eagerly awaiting the Interim Report.Yours very sincerely
Ellen C Wilkinson
