Jane Addams to Lucia Ames Mead, August 18, 1922


My dear Mrs Mead

How wonderful you are to speak in the South in the midst of the summer. Your energy & devotion to Peace fill me with self reproach. I have ↑done↓ a little speaking this summer but on the whole have been very lazy.

I very much admired the article you sent me, it was not only clear and [convincing] but very forceful. I am so glad that Mr Mead is able to write even a little. [page 2] Miss Sheepshanks is still here, Miss Dudley hopes that the Union of Democratic Control can unite with the W.I.L. for one lecture in October.

I leave here Sept 7" and go almost directly to Hull-House.

With affectionate greetings to Mr Mead, I am always devotedly yours Jane Addams.
