June 12--1907.

Miss Jane Addams--
Hull House

Dear Cousin,

One of our young ladies who has just graduated from the University at Madison wishes me to write to you about her desire to do something in settlement work and that she may come to Hull House [page 2] for awhile to get some idea acquaintance with the work and find a place for which she may be fitted, should she meet wth your approval would you kindly let her ↑know↓ and perhaps give her some idea of the work a young graduate may do, not a personal letter, as I know what a busy life you have but through one of your helpers. She will I know be very grateful. I have always known her to be ↑a↓ studious conscientious and sensible girl and [page 3] believe she will make a very useful woman. Her address is--

Miss Margaret McLean
c/o Mr W. C. McLean
Menomonie Wisconsin.

You will be interested to know that I have recently visited Overbrook. Thats where I had a lovely visit with cousin Jane Hull her cheerful, hopeful and patient life is a benediction. All were well.
[Very?] Sincerely yours
Valeria A. Knapp.
