December 29, 1910.
My dear Miss Addams:
I am in receipt of your favor of the 28th instant, asking for an appointment for Miss Katherine Coman, in behalf of the girls' School at Madrid.
Admitting all that is claimed for the school, and also that I am interested in its success, yet I am not in position to add further to my present large obligations along educational lines.
Under these circumstances I can not in justice to Miss Coman, and myself, appoint an interview.
With kindest wishes for you and your work at Hull House, I am,
Very sincerely yours,
