My dear Madam,
I thank you for your favor of April 3.
To my mind the women of America today have the most important mission that has or ever will again be [entrusted] to their care: Keep the school boys out of the trenches and the regular Army officers out of the public schools is that mission & you & you <women> alone can accomplish it.
Read the Examiner of yesterday about the action of the school board to be taken today.
