January 16, 1918.
The office of the County Fuel Administration is being overwhelmed by appeals for coal and intense suffering exists in many parts of the city.
Probably the most important matter before the community [today] is the intelligent distribution of the meager supply of coal at hand.
The lives of many are actually in danger.
The Fuel Administrator asks for an immediate response to the call from the women of the city. You have been chosen to represent the ↑19th↓ ward.
This notice to you to attend a meeting in the State Council of Defense Building at 2:30 Thursday ([today]) has been sent out as an emergency call.
You must not fail us. If you cannot come, send your representative. The lives of the poor people depend upon your [cooperation]. Never before has the community had more need of your services.
Meeting Two Thirty o'clock -- 120 West Adams Street, Library, 5th Floor, rear, Thursday January 17th.
