Hon. Albert J. Beveridge,

Indiana.

My dear Mr. Beveridge,

I thank you very much for your letters, and I am sure that nothing but a vicious interpretation could call non-partisanship in municipal affairs a desertion from the Progressive Party. I have just accepted an invitation from New York to speak at the Progressive dinner held on Lincoln's birthday, and I hope that will silence any talk of defection. I never have answered [newspaper] comments; it is an endless undertaking if one begins, is it not?

With all best wishes for the New Year to Mrs. Beveridge and yourself, I am,

Very sincerely yours,

Jane Addams. [signed]
