My dear Miss Addams: -- I take this first opportunity to thank you for what you did for the women --, the American People, at the Progressive Convention at Chicago recently. (sie sind en zeitgeist.) May I tell you that I was the first woman chosen to serve as a delegate, at the convention from New York? I very much regret that I was obliged to decline. However I expect to serve as a delegate to the state convention in Syracuse, on sept. 5 & 6.

Give no heed as to what some may say of your procedure for you represented the women in such a way that every woman should be proud of your willingness to second the nomination of a man who is wholesome, sane and temperate for president of this great United States.

I do hope that I may have the pleasure of giving you a hearty hand shake for what you have done and are doing for humanity. God bless you keep you and use you. With best wishes I am

Yours very cordially

A. J. Allebach.
