Jane Addams to Aletta Henriëtte Jacobs, October 26, 1919


October 26th 1919

My dear Dr Jacobs:

Your good long letter came just after I had sent mine. I am starting for Philadelphia to our annual meeting, but I want to write that nothing of the newspaper matter reached America so far as I know and that our report is being quite widely distributed. I was much interested in what you wrote of your efforts to get food into Austria and of what you were doing for the children, the whole trouble here is that we are too remote from it all, and I almost envy your chance to make it vivid and appealing.

I am sending your letter on to Alice Hamilton and I am sure that you will hear from her. We speak of you so often and always with great affection and admiration. I am always devotedly yours

Jane Addams [signed]
