Dear Miss Addams,
Miss Culver and I have been following your political career (!) with much interest. Please allow me to congratulate the party upon your adhesion.
I write with some reluctance to engage your interest in the daughter of an old friend. I have known all her kin for two generations before her and they are of the right kind.
This youngest of the third generation is rather shy & not bookish [page 2] like the rest, but is an enthusiast in gymnastics & games -- and has worked successfully at Syracuse.
She would love to help on the country-club play-ground -- [to] wherever her special training would count. I think it is a paying position she needs & I have just written her mother that I think she could not find one there, but that I would speak for her. She has a handicap in hay-fever which forces her to go north for a little while about now. Pray forgive me for adding to your burdens.
