November 5th 1912My dear Miss Addams:
May I take a moment of your time to say to you that your work during the campaign just closed, seems to me the most valuable of your useful life.
We have had for some years splendid programs in social reconstruction presented to us, but here for the first time in our country has been given an opportunity to actualize our ideals.
I am glad you [page 2] have been big enough and brave enough to see and to act. You will never find in your busy life as you look back upon it, a finer and more effective service than your support of Progressive policies and of that true man of God -- Mr Roosevelt.
I am cordially yours,
Ernest E. Day.Miss Jane Addams,
Hull House, Chicago.
