Chicago, December 20, 1921
Miss Jane Addams:
Once a president of the United States was elected largely on the strength of the enemies he had made. With that historical fact in mind, I congratulate you on the disingenuous criticism of yourself in a Chicago Daily Tribune editorial of today. This piece may not elect you president; but I think you may lift your head more proudly, in the opinion of those who know the Tribune well, because of this attack.
