November 5, 1915.
My dear Mrs. Saxton:
I find on my desk a letter from you under date of September the 28th which evidently had been set aside for careful consideration and was for the time being lost. It has turned up, however, at a crucial moment and I can think of no better suggestion for the use of your $200 than to hold a large peace meeting, inviting someone of national or international reputation to come to you. It seems to me the best way to interest and inform the community about you, and this is always a very valuable thing. Outright contributions to the cause are always welcome and always needed, for as you must know, comparatively few dollars are spent for peace, but we feel that the money used in your own state would most benefit you.
May I refer you to Mrs. C. A. Finch of LaMoure, North Dakota, who is Chairman for your state and who is a very active worker for our cause.
With deep appreciation of your interest and humble apologies for the delay of your most valued letter, I am
Very sincerely yours,
