Alice Dow Allinson to Jane Addams, April 29, 1920


Ravinia April 29, 1920

My dear Miss Addams, --

Please find enclosed list of members present at our W.I.L.P.F. meetings at Lincoln Center.

A number of friends who doubtless with a little solicitation would join our ranks were among those attending -- Mrs Packard, who used to be a member, Mrs Bayard Holmes, Miss Lackersteen, Mrs Marsh and others. If we had [page 2] a membership committee to encourage enlistment I think we could have quite an “army” before long.

I have been swamped with the work entailed upon moving our household goods from their winter quarters into our new house and with the anxiety over Brent. I have felt quite incapacitated for outside duties but I hope in a short time things will be less obnoxious!

Ever yours faithfully,

Alice Dow Allinson [signed] [page 3]
