William Kent to Jane Addams, May 11, 1911


May 11, 1911.

Miss Jane Addams,
Hull House,
Chicago, Ill.

My dear Miss Addams:

Enclosed please find a copy of the letter I have written to Mr. Victor Lawson. I am not well acquainted with Mrs. Blaine or with the other well-to-do women connected with your work who are interested in the cause of progress. I hope and trust that you may feel like speaking to them about making a contribution to the campaign fund. I know of no better service that can be rendered the country at the present time. I feel quite sure that Pinchet will go into the fight as soon as he returns if it is decided that he is the man to back up La Follette.

I enclose you a copy of a speech delivered in Congress the other day, which may amuse you.

Yours truly,
William Kent [signed]
