Miss Jane [Addams]: --

Dear Miss [Addams]: --

I am mailing you a little Testament and ask you to kindly deliver it to the prisoner Nicholas Viana who is to be hanged Dec. 19.

I trust Governor Lowden gives him an extension of time -- for it spoils the holiday spirit for many of us to know hangings [page 2] are to occur just before Christmas. Will you also kindly mention this fact to Governor Lowden.

Thanking you in advance -- I am one who craves to be

A "Friend to Man."
