My dear Miss Owen: --
Your letter to Miss Addams must be answered without her [word]. She is still in Europe where she went to attend the International Congress of Women. We do not know how soon she will come back. Perhaps not for several weeks.
She would feel honored by your request, but I have no power to give you permission to use her name in connection with your plan.
Thanking you for your card, I am
Acting Ex. Secy.
