September 17th, 1917.
My dear Mrs. Post:
Mrs. Karsten left last Saturday morning for a two weeks' vacation and in her absence I beg to acknowledge the receipt of your letter of September 15th. Miss Addams is at present at Lake Geneva, where I forwarded your letter addressed to her. I have also written her in reference to your suggestion about Mrs. Slayden.
I am placing your letter on Mrs. Karsten's desk and you will undoubtedly hear from her when she returns to the city.
Very sincerely yours,
Secretary to Mrs. Karsten
