Stella Miles Franklin to Jane Addams, January 6, 1915

My dear Miss Addams,

I tried to get you yesterday but you had just left the house. In response to my telegram, Miss O'Reilly wired that it was utterly impossible for her to go anywhere now as she must get well.

I am so sorry that the working women are not to be represented, but if Miss O'Reilly cannot go I cannot get anyone in the time that is left as some of our people are not so urgently concerned for peace as I am myself.

Will you not yourself keep the thought of the working women to the fore in some way as it is on them in the long slow grinding last that bad conditions always fall most heavily.

I will be with you <in thought> and look eagerly forward to the news. You see nothing can happen till it is conceived in our brains first, and why should not the idea of peace grow and grow from the United States till it has effect?

With best wishes,

Yours sincerely,

S. M. Franklin. [signed]
