↑The resolutions, etc., have just come↓

Dear Miss Addams:
I wonder if it would help you to have me send out the letters from here. I would be very glad to do it if you wish. I do not think it would pay to send to the list of Groups and affiliated organizations. The list has not been kept up to date and the secretaries whose names we have rarely are the present secretaries, I find.
Fifty-nine people have already paid International dues as a result of the letter we sent to all our membership (including the national members at large, the members in Chicago and the groups and affiliated organizations); somewhat over a hundred have paid national dues. The answers to the questions ↑letters↓ are coming in every day now. After a few weeks I plan to send one more appeal to people who have not answered the first letter and then drop the names of those who do not respond in some way.
If I sent the letter (yours I mean) to the national members at large and the Chicago members who have not already paid their annual dues to the International, it would mean about eight hundred letters. If it will be of any help I will be only too glad to do this. In the meantime I enclose a list of the Chicago members which I have checked as I did the other list. The little circle means they have paid International dues, the cross that they have paid their National dues.
We have now over two hundred dollars from these memberships for the International and I have sent the money to Mrs. Hull and have notified Miss Balch of the memberships. Mrs. Hull apparently does not wish to send the money to Miss Balch without definite instructions from you. Would you kindly write her or me giving instructions to send this to the Geneva office, in case you wish this done.
Please send me the letters and whatever material you wish included if you would like to have me send them out. I would be so glad to help.
