LONE TREE POINT
Oct 3, 1903
My dear Miss Addams,
I have your letter of yesterday and the accompanying reply to Mr Beaunisne's comments. I am forwarding it to Mr B. You need have no misgiving that the reply maybe over frank. [page 2] The subject under consideration is serious, in both its moral and its business aspects, and must be dealt with in entire frankness and freedom.
I think it is very desirable that there should be this preliminary thrashing out so that we [page 3] may come as near to a common agreement about the facts as is possible. To this end I would suggest, it agreeable to you, that you send Mr Beaunisne copies of the affadavits referred to in the reply, so that he may know exactly the degree of difference as to the [page 4] facts in question that exists between his understanding of them and that of the investigators. If sent please address to Mr A. G. Beaunisne. I am advising him of this suggestion to you.
