My dear Mrs. Harbert: --
I was out of town when your letter regarding the Panama Canal arrived.
I shall be very glad indeed to be identified with such a project although I am afraid I can give but little time to the matter. I have talked it over with Mr. Charles Beals, Secretary of the Chicago Peace Society, and we will be glad to [cooperate] in every possible way in Chicago.
With congratulations upon your undertaking, I am
