Dear Miss Addams
My little plot to capture money for the W.I.L.P.F. budget seems to be on the way to some success. Dr. Wilhelm [Börner] of Vienna is here in attendance upon 45th [Anniversary] of Ethical Society as leader of Austrian group. He is profusely interested in [our] W.I.L.P.F. He does not speak English but will deliver an address in German on [page 2] behalf of our Fund. He is very eloquent indeed, and a pacifist most radical. My plan is to get him with you, to address big meeting. You of course in English.
Mr and Mrs Kirchberger my good friends with whom Dr. [Börner] is staying are greatly interested and we plan to get [big] [Lieder Kranz] support for meeting in their Hall. I am trying to get the time and strength (both not very dependable just now) [page 3] to attend their supper Tuesday the 10th and work up interest with the women who will be there. No one could have more influence than the Kirchbergers and I am working through them. Dr. [Börner] will I am sure arouse great interest and if you can be there to make a direct appeal for our Fund of $10,000, there should be results.
I am also getting the interest of a dear lady who will give something and I hope if fate desires me some of the ways of helpfulness I should like to serve in I can help you with financial burden.
I write in haste after terrific day of work. Please give me at once any possible date you [care] for choice by the [Lieder Kranz], for meeting -- if they will give us that lift. Perhaps it would be well to wire me possible dates so I can have all [data] at hand early.
