My dear Miss Addams,

Would it be a good bit of spectacular propaganda to have unfurled -- at the proper moment -- a big "world flag"?

You saw my suggested design didn't you? A white world, belted diagonally with a red band, on a blue field of stars; one for each nation joining.

This of course would have no binding effect on the coming Federation, but it would be a concrete symbol for peace-preaching, something visible for the Federation propaganda to focus on. It could be made small, sold at meetings, and so on.

I sent you all my propaganda suggestions.

Cordially and lovingly,

Charlotte Perkins Gilman.
