My dear Mr. Hall:

I do not remember ever having been interviewed by The American Suffragette, and I certainly have never said to that paper or to any other that "the poor would be with us always." I am too well grounded in Kropotkin's "Fields, <Factories>, and Workshops" not to agree with the contention of your letter. I certainly consider it most desirable to have all charities abolished and working people independent.

Thanking you for your kind letter, and hoping we may see you some time at Hull-House, I am

Sincerely yours,

Jane Addams [signed]

Bolton Hall, Esq.,
New York
