My dear friend
I do not know why I have delayed writing to my most hospitable hostess save that I seem to have stepped into a whirlwind of back work. I am sure you know however without the written word, how very much I appreciated all your kindness--and that of your household to Miss [O'Sullivan] as well as to myself. We have put you down as a speaker at our Truancy Conference, you really must come.
Always affectionately yours Jane Addams
