Addams argues that opponents of child labor should promote the positive results of ending child labor on children and society. The speech opened the Tenth Annual Conference on Child Labor in New Orleans.
Addams wrote Rosenwald requesting him to donate additional funds to the National Child Labor Committee but Graves would like additional financial information on the Committee before he recommends that Rosenwald make a larger donation.
Addams informs Woods that she has forwarded his question in regards to children in the theater to Mr. Lovejoy. She also implies that though children should not perform if exploited by managers for profit, it is allowable if it is done with education in mind.
