My dear Miss Addams.
I very much appreciate your kind letter with its good wishes and expression of confidence in me. I feel somewhat appalled at the task before me, but I am keenly interested and I hope I shall be able to put into the work some of the energy and enthusiasm it needs. I am only sorry that I cannot give all of my time to it. This part time arrangement may not work out, but we will try it and see.
Again thanking you, and hoping that you will be in Washington soon. Yours sincerely

P.S. We are still unsettled about an office, the National Council having held over until the end of this week, final decision in regard to our tenancy with them.
