The Campaign states are begging for speakers and Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and West Virginia are so persistently urging me to help that I shall probably have to give a little time to them. May go to Pennsylvania the first week in April. Do you gather that the Merrimac League is still having any semblance of meetings? Of course, I need not say to you that the remarks attributed to me in regard to your having done nothing in Norfolk were not made by word of mouth or by letter. I have said nothing in regard to your work to any one, that I have not said to you, namely, that the ideal president for Norfolk would be some influential woman who could appeal to all sections of the community. Which statement, by the way, was not original with me, but borrowed from you, was it not? In the meantime, I am indeed grateful to you for your energy and enthusiasm in the cause. Cordially Yrs Lila M. Valentine
