Elizabeth Lewis to Jane Addams, August 17, 1915

Cincinnati, Ohio,
August 17th, 1915.
Miss Jane Addams,
Hull House,
Chicago, Ill.

My dear Miss Addams: --

The Woman's Peace Party of Cincinnati, an organization established last winter as a branch of your parent society, desires to open up its fall and winter campaign within a short time. As Chairman of the Cincinnati party I write to ask whether we could secure your services for a public lecture some time in the near future, and upon what terms and conditions you would be willing to come.

We are very anxious to start the work in an intelligent and enthusiastic manner, and we know of no one to whom we could turn with greater confidence in their ability to render practical assistance in this great cause than yourself. We sincerely hope, therefore, that you may see your way clear to favoring us with your presence. We feel sure that Cincinnati will give a warm welcome to the "Head of Hull House", and an attentive hearing to anything she may have to say upon a cause which lies so close to all our hearts.

Hoping to hear from you favorably at your earliest convenience, believe me,

Yours very sincerely,

Elizabeth Lewis [signed]

Mrs. Byrd L. Lewis,
Flat 32, The Roanoke,
Clifton, Cincinnati.
