Paul Underwood Kellogg to Jane Addams, June 11, 1923


June 11, 1923.

Miss Jane Addams,
Hull House,
Chicago, Illinois.

Dear Miss Addams:

Because of space limitations, and more especially because the other members of the staff thought it perhaps not good taste to go back to last year's elections in our review of the National Conference, I omitted the enclosed paragraph from our account. Yet it seemed to me that there was genuine significance in the fact that last year at Providence your name and Miss Addams ↑Richmonds↓ name were put before the electors personifying as you did in my mind two great phases of the development of social work in this country. It seems to me that those phases were as real and your relationships to them as pertinent now as a year ago.

Therefore, I wrote these paragraphs. And while for the reasons stated, they were omitted, I feel that I should like to have you read them, confident that you will not put any misconstruction upon them nor upon my sending them to you. They are an expression of the esteem in which I hold you and which I should not like to let this fiftieth anniversary go by without expressing.
