Jane Addams to Francis Sheehy Skeffington, November 2, 1915


November 2, 1915.

My dear Mr. Skeffington:

I have read with great interest the papers which you sent me and I sympathize very much with your contention that Ireland should have separate representation on the International Committee of Women for Permanent Peace. It was decided, however, at the last meeting that representation of each country should be determined according to the rule made after so many years by the International Suffrage Alliance. That each country having a separate parliament would have the right to furnish its women the right to separate representation. I suppose even that rule with the present law status of home rule in Ireland would leave the matter open to discussion. I am sure that the International Committee which meets at Berne in December would be glad to discuss the matter.

With all good wishes and thanks for your interest in Ireland and the peace movement, I am

Sincerely yours,

Mr F. Sheehy Skeffington,
138 12th Street,
Long Island City.
New York.
