My Dear Miss Addams,

Please excuse my belated but enthusiastic appreciation of your McClure articles. They are splendid, so quiet & effective like you! Perhaps you'll be interested to know that one of [my?] brothers-in-law handed his son <who is about to marry,> Brieux' plays & told him of Dean Sumner's plan, and when the boy had read the plays he announced his intention of getting a health certificate & said that [everyone] should read the plays.

[Today] I saw the certificate which he had sent to his father to deliver to his bride's father. [page 2]

Mrs Gartz & Mrs [Russell?] are advocating that [everyone] should read Brieux which of course they should, and your book.

Perhaps one of these days something will happen.

Faithfully yours,

Frances C Lillie
