Dear Miss Addams:

I hope you can soon send me the comment you desire to make for which I am reserving two pages (1400 words).
I shall be much pleased & obliged if in return for our putting this space at your disposal you will also make what <you> have to say as generally interesting as possible.

I'm not weeping over tears [page 2] over the capture of four more states by the woman suffrage party. What I wish is to be shown how the experiment works. Meantime I am crying in the Wilderness against the military as all of you should be doing!!

I hope you will not repine over W. Wilson election. No President has ever taken office so unpledged as he. Moreover, it is wholesome that one party should have complete control & be held responsible. There will be a great deal of philanthropic legislation in the next four years, and I hope to stand with you for not a little of it.
Sincerely yours,
R. U. Jonhson
