Eleanor Daggett Karsten to Jane Addams, March 10, 1916


March 10th, 1916.

My dear Miss Addams:

Please pardon me for writing so often to you. I do not mean to trouble you and hope you will not feel that I expect answers to my letters. I only like to tell you about how things are going in the office.

I am enclosing some cards which Mrs. Wilmarth and Mrs. Kohlhamer have had printed for our exhibit. We used these [mottoes?] on large charts in our decorative scheme, and they were so pleased with them, that they decided to pay for the printing of these cards to be distributed at the exhibit. We have given out a very great deal of literature during this last week and have reached the sort of people whom we do not easily reach. Working men and women come to our booth and ask for literature which they say they will read, and which I believe they do read when they get home, and although the exhibit has taken a great deal of time, everyone who has been there helping in the work has been very enthusiastic over the results.

With best wishes, I am

Sincerely yours,

Office Secretary

Miss Jane Addams,
Maryland Hotel,
Pasadena, California.
