Harriet Irene Dunlop Prenter to Eleanor Daggett Karsten, November 10, 1919


Women's International League for Peace and Freedom

Toronto Branch of the Canadian Section


Toronto, Nov. 10th 1919

Miss Eleanor Daggett Karsten,

Dear Miss Carsten,

It was a real regret to us not to be able to send some Delegate from our Branch to your meeting in Philadelphia on Nov. 3rd and 4th, but for many reasons we found it impossible.

I am writing to you to ask if you think it possible for Jane Addams to visit this part of the world in the near future. We simply must have someone of weight and ability from outside to stimulate the International Movement here.

If Miss Addams could come, we would guarantee to arrange meetings, not only in Toronto, but in Montreal and other places. It would be real missionary work, and I assure you Canada is in need of the same.

Will you please lay this matter before Miss Addams at once, and with best wishes from the group in Toronto,

I am,

Sincerely yours,

Harriet Dunlop Prenter [signed]

Perhaps you would also kindly let us know as to terms, etc.
