Dear Miss Addams:
I have not yet written to say how glad I was to receive through the publishers a copy of your new book. It has been read so eagerly here that it has been hard [page 2] for any one person to keep the [thread] continuously.
You certainly have shown most convincingly how two apparently altogether distinct and unrelated points of view may be only the two foci of one great curve. [page 3] Such teaching makes life more coherent, and greatly widens one's moral reach. Certainly the new religion of humanity needs to be articulated with the simple human experiences quite as much as did the older forms of faith. Your book [page 4] stands out all the more for having done this all the more because it does not say so.
I am looking forward to seeing you next week, and shall gladly accept your invitation to stay as Hull House —
As Ever Yours
