Jane Addams to Edward Grey, May 12, 1915


British Committee of the International Women's Congress

12th May, 1915.

[My] dear Sir Edward Grey,

May I ask the courtesy of an interview with you within the [next few?] days. A delegation of three women from three neutral nations -- Italy, Holland and the United States -- have come with a commission from the International Congress of Women recently held at The Hague, which we are most desirous of placing before you.

We [realize], of course, how pressed you are, but venture to ask for a few moments of your time, impelled by the gravity of the situation and by a deep sense of the responsibility resting upon women.

Sincerely yours,

Jane Addams [signed]

To Rt. Hon. Sir Edward Grey, Bt., K.G., etc.
