Miss J. Addams,
Hull House,
Chicago,
U.S.A.

Dear Miss Addams,

Further to Miss Huntsman's letter of the 28th ult.

I was delighted when I got back to work last week to find that Miss Huntsman had written you, and sincerely hope that you will be able to preside at one of the Congress Sessions. I believe Miss Huntsman suggested the 3rd, (the Control of Foreign Affairs), but Sir Donald Maclean, who has also been invited, can only come on that particular day, so we wondered whether it would be possible for you to act as president for the 4th Session, when "Actualit├ęs" will be under discussion. As a matter of fact the 4th will be in my opinion the most important of all, and allow us the opportunity for debating on a fuller range of subjects. "Disarmament" and "other current questions" will be discussed.

Everything points to a most representative and successful gathering, and I do hope you will be able to attend and give us the great benefit of your experience and advice.

With all good wishes,

Sincerely yours,

Ben C. Spoor. [signed]
