6th. August 1920.

Dear Miss Addams,

I was very happy as you may suppose to receive together your notes of July 11 and 17th and at about the same time a letter from Mrs. Cothren.

I am glad you approve our change to the new old house. I will send you a picture of it as soon as possible. We are already in, but in the midst of workmen and multiple confusions. Even so it charms us. I think I had better not live here myself, as I fear I should never throw off the work and I find I must save myself where I can.

I am glad too if you are pleased with our long delayed Zurich report.

I enclose a copy of a letter to Dr. Patrick, President of Constantinople College for Women. She wrote me very pleasantly in reply to an earlier letter which reached her when she now is in Italy.

Our August first balance is about francs 30.000. This includes 1000$ held subject to special orders from the U.S.A. and 1000 francs from Helen Cheever which will probably be sunk in furniture for the new house.

I will write you soon about other matters.

I hope you are going to get a good rest this summer and never read or write any [business] letters but mine!

Always affectionately yours,

Emily Balch [signed]
