Oswald Garrison Villard to Jane Addams, February 19, 1921


February 19, 1921

Dear Miss Addams:

Had I a free moment in Chicago I should have seen you, but I was engaged every moment of the parts of three days that I happened to be in your city. More than that I had counted on seeing you at the Fellowship. I wanted to talk about the Commission to you, too. I have felt at times utterly sick about it, the weakness of its direction and the mistakes of which we of The Nation as well as others were guilty, and so I have often reproached myself for ever having asked you to join. Nothing I have ever done has focused such social pressure and intolerance upon us as this. Do let me know the next time you are in New York.

Cordially yours,

Miss Jane Addams
