WOMEN'S INTERNATIONAL LEAGUE FOR PEACE AND FREEDOM
Dear Grace Abbott
First of all let me congratulate you with all my heart on the Washington appointment. It is as fine as it can be and I wanted to cable both to you and to J. Lathrop but prudence finally prevailed.
I am very grateful that you took up the Russian matter so promptly.We saw Dr Nansen this morning with a little committee of Russians in Genvea & [Birokov] & others. He is a little discouraged by the attacks upon him I think, [although] ready to begin. The U.S.A. certainly doesn't seem to be in a cooperative mood [although] [everyone admires?] Hoover's proposition. [page 2]
The assembly has met for three days and while slow getting started is really quite imposing. We will be here until next Tuesday and are really quite [illegible] [pupils?].
It was great fun to see your sister Edith & we miss her very much since she has gone to London. Miss Sanger lunched with us today at a very grand party given by Manley Hudson. She spoke of her with much affection.
I have sent you some of the Russian material and will add more as it [comes] along. Mary Smith sends her love to you and I am Always devotedly yours
