"'Just   Iikh  a *[etftr from  1ome'"
lgaukeha 31rriman
3i. M. Inumans, PubliaIer
waukerha, Wis.,
Dear Miss James.
I think I should warn you that it becomes increasingly
uncertain that I shall be able to attend the Madsion meeting at all.
My broth-in-law Mr Haight, who is also one of my dearest friends, is
very sick of heart trouble. He may live a few weeks or months
or he may slip away any minute. If he is in condition so that it
seems right for me to levae I will come to Madsion, beacuse it seems
my duty to do so. But it is all very uncertain and will be up to the
last minute. Don't depend upon me for much of a speech. A cannot collect
my thoughts for this sort of thing. More definite and important
things than even woman suffrage, which I find very important indeed,
are clutching at me these days.
I amsure by your letter you think the suffrage
matter must be pushed in this legislature. This lets me out as a
possibility in the presidential line --and that is really best. I don't
believe however that it is bbet to approach the legislature now,
though I always have the highest respect for your opinion. I hate
to write such gloomy letters--please believe that.
Affectionately
