November 11, 1912Dear Miss Addams,
It is good of you to think of coming at all. Certainly I would not have you come or think of coming until you feel quite able to begin lecturing. I meant merely that, if you happened to be in this part of the country at any time, I should most gladly know, so that, in case you engagements permitted, I might arrange for the meeting about which we have corresponded. I shall be more than glad to hear from you when the time comes; but if it does not come or if, when it comes, you are too hard pressed, I shall certainly understand.
