George Herbert Mead to Jane Addams, April 12, 1908

Dear Miss Addams:--

I presume that you could not <know> how deep an impression you made last night by your very remarkable paper.

My consciousness was, I presume, in the same condition as that of the rest of your audience -- completely filled with the multitude of impressions which you succeeded in making, and the human responses which you called out from so many unexpected points of view. Certainly no one could have been left in an argumentative [page 2] attitude and there was so much that appeared for apprehension and comprehension that they would not have known what more to ask you.

I want to express my own very profound appreciation of the human document you read to us.

very sincerely


Geo. H. Mead
