Grace Abbott to Jane Addams, January 12, 1924


January 12, 1924.

Miss Jane Addams,
Hull House,
800 South Halsted Street,
Chicago, Illinois.

My dear Miss Addams:

Your letter about the Summer School Committee awaited me on my arrival in Washington.

I have suggested to Miss Woods that I thought Mollie Carroll could be enormously more helpful on the Committee than I could. They had a very successful Students' Peace Conference at Goucher College last winter, and I feel sure that she is in touch with the situation so far as the Summer School is concerned so that she could be of real use to the Committee, while I would not be.

I do hope that the bronchitis is better.

Yours sincerely,


P.S. You know, I am sure, that Miss Carroll is chairman of the Department of Economics of Goucher College.
