James Bryce to Jane Addams, May 6, 1915


6th May 1915

<Dear Miss Addams>

Just after I had received your letter and while I was considering what I could do to comply with the request it contained to secure that your steamer should proceed at once to Holland, I saw in the newspapers a statement that you had already arrived <there> and therefore it was needless to take further action. I hope that you will be able to return with equal safety. There was fighting in the North Sea, and I suppose that it was for the sake of protection from any risks that might arise therefrom that your ship was detained. These perils to neutrals are one of the most distressing features of this horrible war.

<Believe me Sincerely yours>
