General Federation of Women's Clubs
December 31, 1914.
My dear Miss Addams: --
Both your letter and your telegram received. I want you to know that I feel deeply on this subject, but I confess that I am at a loss to know how we may wisely and efficiently act. I want the Federation to do its full part, but I dislike to see us go into futile action. I am hoping that the movement you suggest may be the solution to the question.
Will you not let me know just when the second meeting will take place, so I may try to make my plans to be present? In the meantime, I am writing Mrs. Blankenburg, urging her to join you in Washington. Don't hesitate to call on me for anything that I can do.
I shall appreciate your writing me fully as to the results of the meeting.
Most cordially yours,
Anna J. H. Pennybaker.
I'm also asking Mrs. [Ellen] Ripley, our Ch. of Ed. Asst. Sup't Public Schools, Boston, to attend. Please send her one of the call letters.
