Jane Addams to Henrietta Octavia Rowland Barnett, October 15, 1920


Utica N.Y.

Oct. 15" 1920

Dearest One

I have been homesick for you since I left you in the hands of Mrs Ford. I do hope that the journey to Detroit will be [worthwhile], you were certainly awfully tired and I was filled with grave doubts as to our wisdom. [page 2]

I am sending you a clipping which I meant to give you on the train, it was the [miserable] Devil Baby which threw me off!

Please give my love to Miss [Paterson]. Hull-House will seem empty to me when I get back, but I shall always be grateful to you for having been in it, and am devotedly yours

Jane Addams.
