William Arthur Maddox to Jane Addams, October 27, 1919


My dear Miss Addams:

I wish to thank you very much for your note in reply to my statement of the date of your coming to Rockford. In the dates that I suggested, I felt that I had conserved your time by suggesting that you attempt to reach here in time to have supper with us at six o'clock and speak afterwards. In doing this, it would be impossible for you to leave for Chicago until the next morning at 9:50 or 10:24. If you must be in Chicago before noon, you would have to take a very early train. If you can wait for the 9:50 or 10:24 train, it would make it possible for you to say a few words to our students as a body and see something of the college. However, I am gratified to have you come to Rockford and shall be glad to have suggestions that will make it possible for you to fill your engagements for the following day. As I shall speak at several points near Chicago during the next two weeks, I shall no doubt attempt to meet you before you come here in November.

With best wishes, I am

Cordially yours,

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