Oyster Bay, November 5th, 1912.
My dear Miss Addams:
I send you a sheet from a letter just received by me from an English Member of Parliment, Arthur Lee. Will you let me know if you are to be in England again? I wish to notify Lee and at the same time to give you a line to him.
Now, my dear Miss Addams, I wish to tell you how very much your support in this campaign has meant to me personally. We have fought a good fight; we have kept the faith; we have gone down in disaster. Yet I certainly feel that it would have been wrong for us not to have fought exactly as we did. At any rate, you may be sure of one thing: I shall conscientiously do my best so to act in the future that you shall not feel regret that you supported me in this campaign.
With very high regard, I am

Miss Jane Addams,
