William Arthur Maddox to Jane Addams, October 17, 1919


My dear Miss Addams:

Permit me to thank you very cordially for your response to my recent letter. Naturally we want you to come here [when] you feel that you can arrange your engagements. However, I have just organized all of the active social workers of the city into a club, which we will probably call the Social Service Round Table, to meet once a month for dinner and [an] hour's program. I was particularly anxious that you help me in this organization during the fall as well as help stimulate our social service course at the college at this time. If, by any possibility, therefore, you could spare the time to come to us before December, even at reasonably short notice, we would be ready for you both at the college and the Round Table. Unhappily I plan to be in the east during the month of December, and a date in January, therefore, would be, according to your program, the most available time. I would, therefore, appreciate any date that you could give us in January. I would suggest that you avoid Saturdays and Mondays, the former being the public school holiday and the latter being the college holiday.

Assuring you of our great interest in your work, I am, with best wishes,

Cordially yours,

Miss Jane Addams,
Hull House,
800 S. Halsted St.,
Chicago, Ill.
