My dear Mrs. High:

Thank you very much for your letter and that of Miss Dorothy High enclosing your membership dues in the Woman's Peace Party. We are very glad indeed to add your name to our membership list.

Under separate cover I am sending you some of the recently published material by the Woman's Peace Party, in which I think you may be interested. I am including in this a copy of the address recently given by Miss Addams in Chicago. We hope to send out in a few days a reprint from the June Number of The Seven Arts of Randolph Bourne's article "War and the Intellectuals," which I am sure will interest you also. If you can use any additional copies of any of these articles, we will be glad to send them to you.

I should be very glad indeed to know whether you find much sympathy with our work among your neighbors. It has surprised us very much to see how [eagerly] people come to our meetings, seeming to find comfort in the mere being together and discussing with each other the question of Internationalism and the hope of a world federation after the war.

For the first time since our organization, the Chicago Branch of the Woman's Peace Party has held weekly meetings during this year and these have been very well attended. We plan for good talks on question [of] international interest and I think meetings are well worth while.

With best wishes, I am

Very sincerely yours,

Office Secretary

Mrs. Joseph M. High,
1032 Peachtree Road,
Atlanta, Georgia.
