Dear Miss Addams:-

Now that the Hull House book is out (and proving immensely successful as I hope and believe) are you ready to think of the new book which we discussed rather casually last Summer? As I have thought of it, the evidences have multiplied that there is a crying need for a book on the problem of the girls in large cities. What the book should be you know infinetly better than I. My only ideas are that it should describe the actual state of affairs and that is should offer at least a tentative program of contructive reform or improvement. There is such need for a serious and unsensational treatment of this whole subject that I hope very much that you will take it up in the near future. If a program suggests itself to you, will you not be so good as to let me know?

Very sincerly yours,

Edward C. Marsh [signed]
