My dear Mrs. Henderson:
I feel sure from what I know of your activities in club and charitable work that your sympathies are with the Progressive Party especially because of its platform a copy of which I enclose.
We are very much in need of women who will present to audiences simply the reasons why women should affiliate with thee Progressive Party, and an exposition of the humane planks of the platform for which we have so long and laboriously worked.
Do you feel that you can help us in this matter, and may we count upon you for short addresses -- not more than fifteen minutes in length -- here in Chicago and vicinity?
There is an increasing demand for this sort of help from the county and ward chairman. As the time is so short we beg you to make an early decision and we hope it will be a favorable one. We shall, of course, be glad to talk over the matter with you at headquarters if you feel that you need any persuasion, but we hope to receive by return mail your assent to our placing you upon our list of available speakers. Please give me your telephone number in order that we may reach you easily,
Chairman, Speakers Bureau.
