My Dear Miss Addams,
Congratulations on success of your Washington meeting which I infer, must have been beyond what you expected, I am very glad -- and glad of your election to its Presidency. Now, I beg you to shape your plans so that your visit to the Coast will include July 4, 5, 6, & 7. This will be your chance to get this section of the Country into the movement and make it really National and it will also be the place to get South Am. countries and the Orient into the movement with North America and Europe [page 2] and make it really International. On this I shall write to you more very soon.
Now, I began to write just to ask your permission to use a small ¶ in a recent letter of yours in a circular which it is thought will help our work on this Coast. The sentence ¶ contains the sentence "You know how much we all regard you as our leader in the more popular aspects of the Peace movement."
I thank you in advance for an early and I hope favorable reply to this request and remain Yours Cordially
May Wright Sewall
