Miss Jane Addams,
800 South Halsted Street,

My dear Miss Addams: --

I am taking the liberty of sending you under another cover a pamphlet entitled "The Jews in Poland", gotten out by the National Polish Committee of America. I hope that, despite your busy life, you will find time to read this.

In these days we seem to be absolutely at the mercy of propaganda. I have never had personal experience with any propaganda which seemed to me so terrifying as that directed against the Poles, emanating, I believe, from German and Jewish sources. The Germans feel that a strong prosperous Poland will be a continuous limitation on their natural development toward the East. What the Jews feel I cannot make out. Both the Poles and the Jews in Poland deserve every sympathy. They must learn to live and work together. If Russia opens up I believe that many of the Russian Jews will filter back into Russia, which may be the solution.

Always faithfully yours,

W. C. Boyden [signed]
