Jane Addams to Arthur Eugene Bestor, January 24, 1918


January 24th, 1918

My dear Mr. Bestor:

Since the President's speech on the eighth of January, I find that I am quite eager to avail myself of your kind invitation to serve the Speaking Division of the Committee on Public Information.

I speak at Cornell University at Ithaca, New York, on February thirteenth. I will be at the Antlers Hotel in Colorado Springs from Sunday, March third to the tenth and in Southern California from March fifteenth until the thirtieth.↑*↓ I have, of course, other speaking engagements on food conservation but these dates which I have given you are free.

I should be very glad to fit into any arrangements you care to make for me.

Very sincerely yours,

Jane Addams. [signed]
