Dear Miss Addams:
Thank you ever so much for “Peace and Bread.” It is a beautifully made book, and in these days of bad book-making, that is a very comfortable thing in itself. I am ever so glad to have it, and will read it all together now. I am glad to link up the different parts I have read with what I perceive I have not read. The title is just expressive of what the world needs. It was most kind of you to send it, but I feel that you ought not to have done it because you have so many to give to that your supplies cannot last always.Because of the difficulty of getting all details [straight] it is not surprising that little errors crept in. I hope you have excused me for pointing out one that I thought you might have time to correct. In regard to the President’s utterances and their dates, of which you will often have to speak in the future, it is [page 2] impossible to remember them correctly, so I am taking the liberty of enclosing a pamphlet which I found of the greatest service during the late years of the War and the Armistice time. In it you will find the 14 Points, the 4 Points, and the 5 Points, with their explanations and dates. I carried one of these to [Zurich], and have given many away.
With Louis’s love as well as mine,
