MESSAGE FROM MISS JANE ADDAMS

May the goodwill and comradeship which at last broke through the unnatural barriers of war and refreshed us all in such abundance at Zürich continue with us during the difficult days of social readjustment which each nation is facing; grown accustomed as we had to the understanding and friendships between women of many nations so characteristic of the last half century, we have missed them bitterly during the years of war.

May the similarity of experience in the various countries and the identical conclusions presented by widely separated delegations give a sanction to the sincerity and worth of our deliberations so that we may be able to abide by them as we face a starved and bewildered world so sadly in need of woman’s ministrations.
