Jane Addams to Harriet Dunlop Prenter, February 25, 1920


February 25th, 1920

My dear Miss Prenter:

As I wrote you several days ago, my coming to Canada is so uncertain that I think it would be unwise to make any plans in connection with it.

The plan of having a meeting in the rooms of the Women's Art Association is very interesting -- as I find that the best method of approaching the International situation is [through] the food conditions and I should prefer to have my subject announced in some such way. We have had some such experience in the raising of funds for the German children and thus far have avoided any overt criticism. Our work becomes increasingly easier as public sentiment changes.

The trip to Hamilton sounds possible but I am not sure about Montreal.

Miss Balch has been writing me concerning you and I am very glad to hear that the section is making such progress. I feel very strongly that nothing is gained by pushing too hard when public opinion is so averse ↑that we gain by waiting.↓

Faithfully yours,
