Jan. 23, 1915 Mr dear Mrs, Townsend:- Mrs. Valentine leaves us Monday for various points in S.C., and as she is so rushed, I will take up your letter to her. Miss Gordon's movements are unknown to us with the exception of her being in Washington on Feb. 17th. As soon as we hear from her, will write you, but would suggest that you write her direct for this may possibly be more satisfactory to her. Congratulations upon your ambitious scheme of selling 5000 tickers to Your Girl and Mine. If you are successful, I wish you would send an account of it to the Woman's Journal. I am going to send a notice about the street speaking you told us of. We are sending you by this mail a small roll of petitions and will send more as soon as we have them printed. We have been speaking before labor unions and are glad to see that you are planning the same thing. The labor people are our friends and their names to the petition would help greatly. I am so much interested in your willingness to do public speaking and knowing that you are going to do good work along that line. I think it would be well for you to write to Senator Chamberlain. We are going to have him when Miss Gordon comes, we hope. I would like to know what success you meet with. With kindest regards, Cordially yours, Alice O. Taylor, Dictated AOT/IMT
