Eleanor Daggett Karsten to Gertrude Laverack Winslow, October 10, 1917


October 10th, 1917.

My dear Miss Winslow:

Miss Addams has asked me to thank you for your letter in reference to her article in The New Republic, which gave her great pleasure. She also wishes me to thank you very much for the copy of Mr. Angell's letter. I hope we may be able to have Mr. Angell with us for a course of lectures.

While the Woman's Peace Party has not done anything very pronounced during the last few months, we have been busy in the office and have sent out material from time to time in an effort to keep our members together and to keep alive the discussion of international issues which must take place before the end of the war if the peace which comes at that time is to be a permanent one.

We have been distributing copies of the publication of the League for Democratic Control during the summer and have sent out other publications from time to time. I am enclosing a copy of our reprint from The New Republic which has just gone to our members.

The Executive Board of the Women's Peace Party expects to meet this fall and perhaps a definite statement of the policy may be made at that time. I believe there is a very definite and important task for us to do in constantly keeping before our members [international] issues.

Very sincerely yours,

Office Secretary

Miss Gertrude S. Winslow,
4 [Alwyngton] Road,
Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts.
