My dear Miss Addams:
I have been thinking about our conversation a week ago Sunday concerning your book. I believe that you are making a mistake in delaying its publication. I was very greatly impressed with your [main] thought as you described it to me. I felt that you had a real [message?] and a very important one. As you yourself intimated, there is [danger?] that by delay you will lose your view point, or at any rate lose something of the spirit that you had when you planned out the book.
