October 11, 1911.
My dear Miss Addams:-
Our National Committee on Sunday School Lessons has adopted a course of study for next year which I think will commend itself to you, and asks us to devote one Sunday to the subject of Woman Suffrage.
Of course we can get articles pro and con on that subject; but we believe it will be of very great value to our classes if you would give us one article on the subject. Perhaps you could do it with little or no labor from some lecture or other material you have already in hand. It is a subject before the country, and we desire that it should be considered from the standpoint of religious ethics.
Some 500 classes have already adopted these studies, and we are anxious to give them the best. We hope you will not feel that you must say no.
With best wishes for all your good works, I remain,
<P.S. Let me add that the committee of Direction of the Commission on the Church and Social Service (representing officially more than thirty denominations and 20,000,000 church members) have adopted our lessons our 1912 and recommended them to all the churches "for study and action".>
