Eleanor Daggett Karsten to Clio Jensen, October 25, 1916


October 25th, 1916

My dear Miss Jensen:

Miss Addams has referred to me your letter asking for four dozen copies of "Towards Permanent Peace" (the report of the International Congress of Women at The Hague) and also your money order for six shillings to cover this.

I regret to say that we have no copies of this pamphlet, but I am sending you four dozen copies of The Report of the International Congress of Women at The Hague, thinking that they may be of some assistance to you. I am also enclosing some other material which has recently been published by the Woman's Peace Party in which I believe you will be interested.

I should like very much indeed to hear from you in reference to the compulsory military training in schools, which I believe you have throughout Australia. There is, as you probably know, a strong tendency to introduce this system in the United States and we are bending every effort to counteract such action and we would greatly appreciate a report from you as to how the system works out in Australia. We have been much interested in such notices as we have seen in various publications of the work of the Women's Peace Party in Australia and should be very glad indeed to hear from you again.

I am including in the package of literature which I am sending you a copy of our Year Book which was recently published. We expect to hold our Second Annual Meeting in Washington December 8th and 9th. Perhaps you would care to send some message from the Women's Peace Army of Australia, or a short report of your work to be mentioned at this meeting. We should be very glad indeed to receive this.

With best wishes, I am

Sincerely yours,

Office Secretary
