My dear Mr. Adler:
I appreciate very much your kindness in sending me a copy of your new book which I am anticipating reading with a great deal of profit.
I was attending the Conference of Social Workers at Kansas City the Sunday you spoke in Chicago and I reached the city just as you left, very much to my regret.
Hoping I may have the pleasure of seeing you soon and thanking you in person, and with cordial greetings to Mrs. Adler, I am,
Jane Addams. [signed]
