January 15, 1916.
My Dear Miss Addams:
I am directed by the Secretary to acknowledge the receipt of your letter which Mrs. Rublee handed to me personally yesterday, with enclosures about the Union of Democratic Control and an article by Norman Angell. The Secretary wishes to thank you for sending them and says he will read them with interest.
I am very sorry that I was held up with the grippe when you called on him the other day as I would like to have had the pleasure of seeing you personally.
Very truly yours,
