My dear Miss [Shankle], --
In Miss Addams absence your letter to her of September 28th, has been handed to me. She will be told of the interesting content in your letter, but I am writing you to urge that you make no plan to come to Chicago within the next year or two to solicit funds for your School. It may be that you have special supporters here to whom you could appeal in writing. But Miss Addams is at the present time so involved with so many educational undertakings that she hopes very much you will not feel that you ought to call on the Chicago community for sometime to come. She wishes you every success and sends you her cordial greetings.
