DOUBLEDAY, PAGE & COMPANY-PUBLISHERS
November 8, 1905.
Dear Miss Addams:
We heard a little while ago that you had begun to write your reminiscences of <or> experiences in a series of articles for The Ladies' Home Journal. On that very day I took the liberty to send you a telegram, saying that it would be a great pleasure to us if we might publish them in book form. As you know, we have long had a wish to have a book of this general kind by you, and our experience with somewhat similar books has led us to believe that we should make a great success with it. By success, of course, I mean that we should so spread its good gospel as to bring satisfying results, and [page 2] should at the same time make it as profitable undertaking for you as possible.
May I not have hope that after these articles have appeared in the Home Journal, we may publish them for you as a book?
Very heartily yours,
Walter H. Page [signed]
