Dear Emily Balch
I am so sorry you have been ill and I hope the journey to Washington isn't asking too much of you. Mrs Mead, Mrs Post & I were already there, & Mrs Kelley is always glad to come down to see Ko.
I want very much to see you most of all. Do you think that the old difficulty [between] the Scandinavians & Dr Jacobs has sprung up again?
Always yrs J Addams
