Eleanor Daggett Karsten to Emily Herey Denison, February 21, 1917


Chicago, Feb. 21, 1917.

Mrs. James Floyd Denison,
Metropole Hotel,
Denver, Colo.

My Dear Mrs. Denison:

Thank you for your letter of February 19th, expressing so clearly your opinion in reference to the stand you take at this time. I also feel very great confidence in President Wilson, and I think he is exceedingly glad to have the expression of the Anti-War sentiment which is so strong in the West [reach] him.

We had an Anti-War mass meeting at the Coliseum last Sunday. The Coliseum seats about 10,000 people. It was crowded and hundreds were turned away.

The Executive Board of The Woman's Peace Party is meeting today in New York with the State Chairmen and the Chairmen of Branches and Affiliated Organizations, to determine the policies of The Woman's Peace Party. You will, I am sure, be glad to hear the results of this meeting.

Yours very sincerely,

Office Secretary.
