Jane Addams to Mabel Hay Barrows Mussey, March 22, 1909


March 22, 1909.

My dear Mrs. Mussey:-

I have unfortunately just signed a contract to give a book to Macmillan by October first, so I am afraid I have left very little time for new plans for the summer. Perhaps another year I may be more fortunate. I will certainly post your invitation and tell the residents about it.

I think you and Mr. Mussey are to be congratulated upon the Columbia appointment, the opportunity of working with Mr. Giddings, Mr. Seager, and the rest.

I am so glad to hear that you are stronger and able to direct Greek plays again. Perhaps the dim future holds another one for us!

With cordial greetings to Mr. Mussey, I am,

Sincerely yours,

Jane Addams [signed]

Mrs. Henry Raymond Mussey.
