Jane Addams to Harold LeClair Ickes, August 3, 1914

Hulls Cove Maine
Aug 3d 1914

My dear Mr Ickes,

Mrs Bowen is still so seriously ill that no matter can be brought before her. Her children are all here & are so opposed to the Co. Candidacy as are the doctors, that I dare not bring it up again. I am sorry to seem so obstinate but it is the only way.

I have written to Mr Perkins that I have made you my proxy, you are very good about it [page 2]

With cordial greetings to Mrs Ickes, I am

Faithfully yours

Jane Addams.
