Jane Addams to Hannah Clothier Hull, August 1924


My dear Mrs Hull

I am really quite [alright] again and am really apologetic to have frightened my friends. I came through the Congress and the Summer School very well and while my "attack" may have been superinduced by fatigue, it was not unlike others I have had. They only mean that I must liken myself to an [page 2] invalid while they are on.

Emily Balch has been here for a week and we have about finished up the foreign correspondence.

The division of the finances between the National and the International funds were quite [alright] and the latter still got the lions share.

The whole cost of the report will be about $1300. of which we have $1025 paid in [page 3] and a very little more promised.

Miss Balch and I are sending out a letter to 50 peoples hoping that at least half of them will give ten dollars each & that will finish up the matter.

Mrs Post would ↑like an edition of↓ 4000 instead of 3000 but that would cost $1550, and I feel that we have already overworked our funds for money.

We have had one glorious day after another on this beautiful island -- a wonderful summer. I hope that [page 4] you are feeling equally well and are having a good summer.

Please give my love to your entire household, and especially to your oldest daughter whom I recall with so much pleasure -- a human touch in the midst of our most abstract discussion at Swarthmore.

I haven't told you how glad I am that you are the National President and [I much] I anticipate working with you. Always devotedly yours Jane Addams
