My dear Miss Addams:-

I have your letter of the 4th, enclosing signed copy of the agreement for which please accept my thanks. I have pleasure in enclosing herewith, a duplicate bearing our signature. 

The new title which you suggest seems to all of us decidedly better than the one first suggested. The only possible objection to it that we can see is that "The Spirit of Youth" is a little vague and abstract. Would it not be better to make the title perfectly definite and concrete: "Our Boys and Girls and the City Streets"? It seems to us here that this title will do more the book than any other that has occurred to us, and I hope it may also seem to you sufficiently accurate to justify its adoption. Will you kindly let me know what you think of it?

With many thanks for your kindness, and with the hope that our publication of the book may prove satisfactory to you,

I am,

Very sincerely yours,

Edward C. Marsh [signed]
