Dr. Jacobs has arrived in New York a day early and Balch reviews the plans to visit Wilson. Jacobs wants to see Addams before her potential visit with Wilson but it is possible that this will not happen.
Nasmyth sends a reply to Wilson's recent speech explaining the need for disarmament to perpetuate national safety rather than an increase in war preparation. He offers a list of proposals to ensure peace which focus on strengthening international relations.
Addams argues that international peace is not a failed idea, and even though World War One is in the early stages of fighting it is not to late to stop war from continuing. Bryan also claims that peace is possible with mediation.
