NATIONAL COMMITTEE ON AMERICAN JAPANESE RELATIONS
287 FOURTH AVE., NEW YORK.
September 15, 1924
My dear Miss Addams:
The new immigration law has resulted in important changes in American Japanese relations, rendering obsolete the Statement of Policy and Program which has been the basis thus far of the organization and work of this Committee.
The Executive Committee has accordingly, after careful consideration, adopted a new statement, a copy of which I herewith enclose. I trust it meets with your approval. We would appreciate any comment you may care to make in regard to it.
Under separate cover I am mailing you a copy of a pamphlet just issued by the Federal Council's Commission on International Justice and Goodwill, entitled "Japan Wonders Why." It presents in rather striking form the attitude of many of Japan's leaders in regard to America's exclusion law.
I shall be glad to send this pamphlet to any persons whom you may suggest, together with an invitation to membership on our Committee of One Thousand.
This pamphlet should, we feel, have rather wide distribution. We are also planning to publish and circulate other important pamphlets and leaflets dealing with American Japanese relations. For this work our Committee needs additional funds. Any contribution you can give toward this work will be gratefully received and carefully used.
Very sincerely yours,
