Eleanor Daggett Karsten to Jane Addams, March 9, 1916


March 9th, 1916.

My dear Miss Addams:

I am enclosing a copy of a report of the work done in the National Office during the month of February.

I am sorry that I failed to enclose the copy of the Resolution and personal letter sent out in reference to the military training in the public schools of Chicago. I am enclosing them now. We have not heard from many of these [letters], but I hope that a number of them have been sent directly to the Board of Education. I see by the paper this morning that the Resolution was presented at the Woman's Club, and, in spite of the fact that Mr. Zueblin made a brilliant speech advising conscription for every boy and girl in the country, the Resolution received thirty signatures.

I am enclosing a copy of a letter which we have had printed at Mrs. Fannie Fern Andrews' suggestion.

We have been in correspondence with the editor of the Atlantic Monthly, and also with Mr. Lucien Price, to whom the letters printed under the title "Radical's Progress" were [addressed], and Mr. Price has secured permission from the Atlantic Monthly for us to print the article entire. He feels that it would suffer from being cut in any way. I wrote two weeks ago asking the editor of the Atlantic Monthly to designate in what form he wished us to make acknowledgment to the Atlantic Monthly, and I hope to go ahead with the printing of this article at once.

We are expecting Mrs. Thomas home on the 11th and shall be very glad to see her.

Sincerely yours,

Office Secretary,

Miss Jane Addams,
Maryland Hotel,
Pasadena, California.
