September 13th, 1911.
My dear Miss Addams:
Your copy was received immediately after the telegram of inquiry. In your plan for the remaining article you omitted the chapter on Public Hygiene. You probably thought this a rather painful subject to approach in a magazine. It is, I think, less painful than the chapter on Moral Education, and on the whole, I think it more important. Therefore, if you have no objection, I should like the third article to be the chapter on Public Hygiene, with some very slight condensing.
I think in that chapter you might condense or omit altogether pages 12, 13, and the first half of 14. It seems to me that this chapter might well end with the quotation from Shaw, which makes an extremely strong ending. You could omit there the rest of page 16, which would be quite all right in your book, but might sound a little apologetic in a magazine.
