Addams discusses the two methods by which Hull-House seeks to expose immigrant communities to greater society: by securing people who form friendships in the community and by providing self-expression to the immigrants.
Addams writes about finding a location for her settlement and the early days of settling into the neighborhood and developing the ideas for their work. This is the third of six articles excerpted from Twenty Years at Hull-House.
Addams informs Woods that she has forwarded his question in regards to children in the theater to Mr. Lovejoy. She also implies that though children should not perform if exploited by managers for profit, it is allowable if it is done with education in mind.
