Miss Jane Addams,
Hull House,
Chicago, Illinois.

Dear Miss Addams:

Chapter III is here by this morning's mail. We can readily do the necessary cutting and send you proofs and, of course, can make clear that they are only parts of those two chapters in the footnote.

It is entirely all right for you to place those other chapters in the Christian Century and I am afraid I did not cover your point about the Yale Review in your last letter. We, of course, see no objection to your placing one of your chapters in the Yale Review. If you care to send them the 11th chapter, that would be all right -- provided -- and here let me be as rigorous as a dozen editors wrapped up in one -- you write us a new concluding [installment] for our March number which we ought to have in hand not later than February 1 and which would gather up both your strands of Peace and Bread in relation to this winter's situation and to the future.

If on the other hand, you could send the Yale Review some other chapter and send us Chapter XI, as suggested in my last letter, that would be quite satisfactory to us and perhaps mean less work for you.

It is for you to decide.

With best wishes for the New Year.

Sincerely, [page 2]

P.S. Before this goes off to you, comes your further letter saying you are making further changes in chapter III in handling the proofs of the book. As there is no time, I am returning our manuscript copy of it so that you can make them in manuscript. But the last thing I wanted you to do was to attribute your criticisms of the Wilson policies to your own "hateful reactions," for I don't think you had any.

I think you asked me to suggest something for the introduction which would make clear that you were not attempting to write any history of all the peace movements during the war or of all the policies of the government departments, etc. which you touch upon; but rather plan to stick pretty closely to the Woman's Peace Party and to contacts which grew out of that work. It strikes me that a brief sentence to that effect would do the trick.

P. U. K.
