Addams informs her publisher that she has sent out a manuscript of her latest book to Ely for proofreading, but he will not return from a trip for several weeks. Addams would prefer that he give his input on the manuscript, but if Brett cannot wait that long, she will rush the process.
Macmillan indicates that their copy of the contract for Newer Ideals for Peace stipulates that payment will be made on publication of the manuscript, not submission, and that they are ready to publish it whenever Addams is ready.
Marsh sends Addams a copy of Race and Immigrants in America by John R. Commons. He also reports that the Macmillan Company is eager to publish Addams' third book after the success of Newer Ideals of Peace.
