My dear Miss Shaw,
May I thank you for your most generous letter. While I have had no doubt as to my own position, I was inevitably worried as to possible implications.
I am sure we have tied down the new party to equal suffrage and I [page 2] can only hope that the coming campaign will commit the other parties as well and that the cause will benefit from the education at least. You will let me know, won't you, if at any time you think I am making a mistake and I am sure you will feel at [page 3] liberty to have me take such part or no part in the Philadelphia convention as seems wise.
With sincere appreciation of your letter, I am Faithfully yours
