Jane Addams to Sarah Alice Addams Haldeman, January 10, 1901


Jany 10th" 1901

My dear Alice

I hadn't read [illegible title] before I sent it. I simply assumed that you might be interested in Mr White's book because you knew him at Hull-House and because he was a Kansas fellow. I have read the book since and while it is disagreeable, it is certainly clever and puts forth an aspect of family influence and affection which it [does?] we are good to see more clearly.

I hadn't thought of course of Marcet's reading it. I might easily send you many books that would be too mature for her.

Sarah refused to visit "Sadie" who gave up her school at [Wausau] because she had this better offer at a [Sec'y] in Oxford. I have just come back from lecturing & haven't time for longer letter.

Always your loving sister --

Jane Addams
