Louis J. Affelder to Jane Addams, December 20, 1924



Pittsburgh, Pa., February 20, 1924.

Miss Jane Addams,
Halsted Street,
Chicago, Illinois.

My dear Miss Addams:

Upon my return to the office this morning after being absent for three days, I find three letters from you and your telegram, to which I replied earlier in the day. I have before me your letters of February 14th, 16th, and 18th, containing the following checks:

Alice Robson -- -- $500.00
C. Robson -- -- 500.00
C. P. [Anderson] -- -- 5.00
H. Jacobs -- -- 50.00

It is my understanding that no receipts are to be sent by me and that you are taking care of this direct. If, however, you want me to send receipts, please let me know.

May I request that the names be written more clearly on the forms, as some of them are difficult to read? You may find that my interpretation as indicated above is wrong in some instances.

I am not opening a separate bank account for this fund, but will deposit the funds in the account of the National Federation of Settlements. My books as well as the Secretary's books will show a record of all receipts and expenditures.

Regarding additional names here, I would suggest that the best list you can obtain will be the members of the Boards of the Settlement Houses. These you can obtain from the several head residents.

Yours very truly,

Louis J. Affelder [signed]

P.S. Since writing the above I have also received from you check of Geo. F. Porter, $25.00, and Alexander Mann, $10.00.

↑Please endorse checks to National Federation of [Settlements.]
