THE WOMAN'S PEACE PARTY
THE SECTION FOR THE UNITED STATES OF
My dear Miss Balch:
Mrs. [Rhoads] has sent us her check for $500, so you see your luncheon was by no means in vain. This brings up our total to $11,591, but not a penny has yet come from Boston where they raise more money than anywhere else for the local branch of the Woman's Peace Party. I think I will write directly to Mrs. Forbes and shall be very grateful for any suggestions you can send me. I lost the list of Boston names you suggested the other day.
All this, however, seems very trivial and remote in face of the present situation and I hope the Neutral Conference Committee is pushing a league of neutrals, the beginning of a conference to consider their mutual rights. It would, at least, be a larger method of approach than the old way of taking alarm over possible infringements of rights.
I suppose you have seen Mr. Lochner since he has returned from Washington. I was very glad to have the telegram from him on Saturday.
We have sent a good many telegrams to the President from Chicago. I am enclosing a copy of a letter just received from Denmark. It is well that the present International Chairman is solid with somebody.
Always devotedly yours,
