November Twenty Ninth.
My Dear Miss Addams.
The one great disappointment of my life is that I can not accompany Mr. Ford on his mission.
The College refused to release me, and Mrs. Steiner was very unhappy at the thought of my going. I believe in this mission with all my heart and would in a moment sacrifice my position in the College to go just because it is being ridiculed. I have never before wished as much as I do now to do this very thing or to make some <other> great sacrifice for the cause of peace.
With all the best wishes,
E. A. Steiner
