Montgomery, Feb. 2, 1912.
My dear Miss [Addams]:
I have read with considerable interest several of your articles on conditions in your city. If you will pardon a suggestion, I think that so many people writing on conditions of this class always say that fine clothes, money, etc., will be the reward. It has come under my personal observations that in numerous instances that it hard for the unfortunate women to make ends meet.
Accept my congratulations on your splendid work. You are certainly working on the right lines.
With expressions of the highest esteem, I am
