Jane Addams to Mary Rozet Smith, March 8, 1910



I have been working on The American articles all morning and have finally sent the last three together, both that they may arrange the illustrations more easily and that I may get them off my mind. The lectures are going on pretty well [although] they make me surprisingly tired.

I was so happy to have your letter yesterday -- it sounded fairly well altogether and certainly the sleeping <record> was fine! [page 2]

I am quite hurt in my feelings that you think I cannot endure hardships as well as you. Just try me and see! I quite long for the little fine rooms. Please give my love to Eleanor and my cordial greetings to the [illegible name] & Hamills.

Always, Dearest, devotedly yours J. A.
