FIGHT THE FAMINE COUNCIL,

BANK CHAMBERS,
329 HIGH HOLBORN, W.C.1.

September 24th 1919

Dear Miss Addams,

I am venturing to send you a packet of one of Mrs Buxton's pamphlets in the hope that perhaps you might like to distribute some of them in America. They tell their own tale and we are very anxious that the facts should be known as widely as possible. Do you think it would be possible to get a [center] of distribution in the States? or any contributors towards the expenses of production and distribution? If this could be done we might extend our work widely, and the Economic condition is so appalling that we feel that no effort should be spared to arouse Public opinion in every direction. We trust that the International Economic Conference which is to meet in London in November may contribute some suggestions towards the solution of European difficulties.

I wish very much that you were going to be present.

With all kind regards,

Believe me dear Miss Addams,

Yours sincerely,

E. M. Leaf. [signed]

Miss Jane Addams,
