Dear Miss Addams,
Please accept my thanks for your book "Twenty Years at Hull House." It is a great work -- stimulating and encouraging. You have helped me [page 2] as well as hundreds of others who have had the privilege of coming in contact with you. You grow continually and continuously as your work expands and enlarges; and it seems to me that you ought to take great satisfaction in your life, as your friends do.
Empathetically yours Richard T. Ely
