My dear [Miss] Addams

This is just a little note to tell you what I don't want to say in public tomorrow, what a joy it has been to me to get the new building ready and [page 2] to try and make it as good as I could, and how proud and happy I am that it has turned out so well and that it pleases you. I have always wanted to do something for boys because [page 3] of my gratitude and thankfulness to the good God for my own two dear sons and if this building helps to keep any boys from going wrong I shall be even more thankful.

Aff'ly yours

Louise de Koven Bowen [page 4]

[Miss] Jane Addams
