My dear Miss Addams:
I am sending you a check for $600, which we consider the balance due you on account of the articles. Now when I think of the effect they made and the way that so many readers have written about them, it seems as if I ought to pay you more and I wish I could.
For instance, here is a bit in a letter just caught in the mail this morning: "I have to take off my hat to read your Jane Addams story. I don't know whether this comes from a higher sort of admiration or just pure reverence. I wish you would tell her that her light is shining beyond Hull House -- and Chicago." These expressions come to us all the time.
I should like to know in advance, if at any time, you are going to deliver an address. We make up the magazine long in advance and if we could have a copy in a case like this, beforehand, we might be able to publish soon after you delivered it and have more timely effect.
I have just received from Dr. William [Osler?] a very remarkable address that I will print before long.
Very sincerely yours,
John S. Phillips [signed]
