My dear Mr Kellogg --
I find that I can't write to Mr Rosenwald about the [Lasker] matter -- it comes too soon after our talk on The School of [Civics etc.] but I will back you up if you write him and think that we might have a good chance.
Our little conference in Boston was more or less dependent upon the larger one in N.Y. If that came off, we wouldn't need ours.
I am sending Mrs Mead's letter that you may see how doubtful it is. We would have the Boston one on Oct 7" -- at the Hotel Touraine probably. Perhaps you and Miss Wald can stir up some N.Y. people to come. I do wish we could catch Hamilton Holt.
Faithfully yours J Addams
