I have spent the night with Eleanor [illegible] and speak in Hartford this afternoon. Your letter at Worcester brought just a little cheer but I am anxious all the time for you dear, as well as for the others.
This heavenly spring weather holds out and I am much enjoying this dear old spot. There is certainly a reaction [ahead?] in favor of country life. If I lived in New England it might in time strike me. We had a beautiful drive [page 2] of five miles last evening. I have only two more addresses and then I come to the end and shall see you dear as soon as I reach Chicago. Please sleep and rest all you can. Always and always yrs Jane AddamsMarch 26″ 1903
