CHICAGO. Nov 1/13
My Dear Miss Addams,
You probably have an abundance of commendation mixed with some criticism in your work. I want to express to you my hearty [endorsement] of your positions as to the Progressive Party, Equal Suffrage & other social reforms, & not the least your glorifying Abraham Lincoln as the great democrat.
As an old Presbyterian minister, I have long wished to thank you for putting on record your early refusal to be forced into an evangelical profession before you were ready, & also for the fine statement of your religion, profession & church membership.
God has been good to give you such great opportunities, & so much wisdom to improve them.
Duncan C Milner
