Eleanor Daggett Karsten to Mary Louise McLaughlin, May 2, 1917


May 2nd, 1917.

My dear Miss McLaughlin: --

Your letter of April 18th addressed to Miss Addams has been forwarded to this office and I am writing to tell you how impossible it is to get any definite information as to what the Espionage Bill will cover. There are a number of Bills in reference to this matter before the House now and the whole matter is [in flux]. I believe in order to be quite safe you would have to wait until a Bill is passed and then secure a copy of the Bill. Your publisher will undoubtedly know as soon as the measure is published just what the terms are.

Very sincerely yours,

Office Secretary.

Miss M. Louise McLaughlin,
4011 Sherwood Avenue,
[Arnsby] Place,
Cincinnati, Ohio.
