My dear Miss Addams: --
We have received the following cable from Miss Balch. “Robinson accepts. Dejardin’s absence limited two months inclusive. Shall we send her or Pottecher or Rihouĕt, both English speaking." Two months inclusive being hardly worth the expense of coming, Mrs. Lewis and I decided to cable back “send Pottecher or Rihouĕt your discretion” We would like to have consulted you but the time is so short that we felt we must not delay our return message. We are counting now on having the three foreign speakers at our Annual Meeting. We hope also to have some of the Pan American women with us, and are trying to get a speaker from among those for our Mass Meeting. If we succeed in this I think it may be best to have women only as we did before.
Hoping Miss Addams that if you have any suggestions you will send them to us,
