Miss Jane Addams,

800 South Halsted Street,
Chicago.

Dear Miss Addams: --

I hope that you will approve of the letter that I am sending you herewith in regard to the situation in the Near East. Would it be possible to secure a special Committee to take this matter up?

I have a number of letters from you waiting acknowledgment and reply and especially acknowledgment of receipt of various [checks] enclosed, but I do not want to hold this letter back on this account.

Miss [McDowell] is with us and it was ↑is such↓ a pleasure to have her.

I got back from Genoa and Varese a little over a week ago and have been very busy catching up with things. Properly answering your letters should have come first, but things immediately pressing crowded in ahead of it. You know how it is.

Helen Cheever has written me about the Washington Conference and it sounds very encouraging and happy. I hope you were pleased. It was too bad about Gertrude Baer's contre temps. I am distressed that it should have brought so much trouble to you and Miss Wald. I have written to Miss Wald, thanking her.

Affectionately yours,

Emily G Balch [signed]
