Ryan February 28, 1916. Mrs. B. B. Valentine, Commercial Building, Second Street, Richmond, Virginia. My dear Mrs. Valentine: I am very glad that you feel you are going to be able to use Miss Foley in Richmond. I think now, because of the difficulties in fixing positive dates for her, that she undoubtedly will not arrive in Richmond until the last of March or the first of April. Just as soon as I can do so, I will write you and tell you definitely just when she will be there. Mrs. Park's address is 167 Tremont Street, Boston. I am sorry that I cannot give you any information regarding the possibility of her speaking outside of Massachusetts, or the expense involved. You are quite right in thinking that she is a conservative and charming speaker, and I am sure she would prove to be very helpful for the cause in Virginia if you could persuade her to come there. I do not know however, how much speaking she is doing now and would advise you to write directly to her. Sincerely yours, Agnes E. Ryan Per. E. B Power AER/EBP/LMG
