My dear Mr. Bestor:
Since the President's speech on the eighth of January, I find that I am quite eager to avail myself of your kind invitation to serve the Speaking Division of the Committee on Public Information.
I speak at Cornell University at Ithaca, New York, on February thirteenth. I will be at the Antlers Hotel in Colorado Springs from Sunday, March third to the tenth and in Southern California from March fifteenth until the thirtieth.↑*↓ I have, of course, other speaking engagements on food conservation but these dates which I have given you are free.
I should be very glad to fit into any arrangements you care to make for me.
Very sincerely yours,
Jane Addams. [signed]
