Wilbur Kelsey Thomas to Jane Addams, April 6, 1920


April 6, 1920

Miss Jane Addams
[800] S. [Halsted] St

Dear Friend:

Thank you very much for forwarding the checks for our relief work and may we trouble you to give Miss Smith the receipt for her gift.

We appreciate very much all the help you have given us in informing people about our work and especially in arousing them to the terrible need in Europe. We trust that a committee is organized in Denver promptly for help will be so greatly needed in these next three months. People living as close to the land as do most Americans ought to know that supplies get short just before harvest even in a land of plenty.

Have you been told that a cable on March 29th stated that our workers were feeding 57,000 children in eight cities and expected to be feeding 200,000 in twenty cities by the first of May?

Sincerely yours,

Executive Secretary
