CHICAGO, March 23, 1911.

Hon. Walter L. Fisher,

Dear Sir:

Recently in New York City a Child Welfare Exhibit was held, the purpose of which was to educate the community in the betterment of conditions for children.

This Exhibit is to be moved to Chicago, supplemented by local material, and displayed at the Coliseum from the 11th to the 26th of May. The expense of the entire Exhibit has been most generously assumed by Mrs. Cyrus H. McCormick, Jr.

A group of representative citizens have been requested to lend their names as a General Committee. Will you kindly allow us the use of your name?

Yours sincerely,
JANE ADDAMS, Chairman,
SHERMAN C. KINGSLEY,  Vice Chairman,
COLIN C. H. FYFFE, Treas.,
THOS. W. ALLINSON, Sec'y.
