New York, January 14th, 1910.
My dear Miss Addams:-
I have read with trepidation of your recent operation. I trust you are convalescing successfully from its effects. I have just been reading "The Spirit of Youth & the City Streets" and I can not refrain from expressing to you, in some form, my admiration for the exquisite piece of work you have there performed. To those of us who care about the young girls and young boys it is full of beautiful meaning and the spiritual essence of your own philosophy that shines through it is an inspiration.
I am hoping to be in Chicago for two or three days about the 13th or 14th of February and I am hoping then to meet Mrs. Bowen and to see your dance halls and halls in <the> public parks.
