Bade,Editorial Rooms THE INDEPENDENT,130 Fulton St., New York.My Dear Bade:-Each time I read your editorial, the finer I think it is, and I am writing to ascertain whether it is still in type, and if so whether we could not make some arrangement to have 1000 copies of these 3 pages struck off, and we would arrange to pay for them. It would be best if it could be put on one sheet. We would send it to all of the Women's Clubs, and it would be sort of an Ad for THE INDEPENDENT as well, if it contained the heading of Page 201.I find upon search, that we sent the only copy we had of the Commonwealth Hearings to Mr.Whitman, so I hope that you got copy of the Pinchot letter from him.We are looking forward with pleasure to your homecoming.Sincerely yours,[ILLEGIBLE]06294
