July 8, 1914.
Miss Jane Addams,
c/o Mrs. Joseph T. Bowen,
Bar Harbor, Maine.
Other women on Progressive ticket will be Miss McDowell and Mrs. Moses Purvin. News, Herald and Tribune have already endorsed the idea that Mrs. Bowen and others should run for Commissioner. There will be no difficulty with reference to summer vacation. I sincerely hope you will wire me Mrs. Bowen's consent to run.
