Anne Henrietta Martin to Jane Addams, October 21, 1914

October 21, 1914.

Miss Jane Addams,
Hull House,
Chicago, Ill.

My dear Miss Addams:

Although you told me your expenses had been provided for when I wanted to buy your ticket at Elko, I feel that we should pay them for the Nevada part of your journey and enclose a [check] for $50 to cover approximately your traveling expenses while crossing the state twice last Saturday and Sunday. Will you also let me know the amount due for your travelling expenses to and from Nevada?

I enclose originals of telegrams I forwarded to you at the Brown Palace Hotel, Denver. <Monday.>

Our university president, Dr. Hendricks, sent you a belated invitation in my care "to visit the university" which arrived on Monday morning after you left. Under separate cover I am sending you the Nevada Journal and two Reno Gazettes with accounts of your meetings. They have had a wonderful effect. If we can sustain public feeling as you left it in Nevada, we shall win with a large majority.

We hope that you have had a good opportunity to rest since returning to Chicago. I do not know how to express my appreciation of all you did for us; I won't try to. But a large part of our good vote on November 3 will be due to you.

With sincere regards and wishing I could do something for you, believe me,

Sincerely yours,

Item Relations
