My dear Sir,

The State Convention of Pan American Round Tables meets in McAllen on March 9th. and 10th., which, you have probably learned from your wife.

Mrs. Griswold tells me of an excellent address which you gave them on the "Association of American Nations" and I am wondering if you could be persuaded to give it to our Convention shortly after noon on the tenth of March. We should feel highly honored if you could arrange to do this. We plan to have a luncheon on that day at twelve-thirty, to which a number of special guests shall be invited, and are eager to have them enjoy this address with us.

To use an expression of Mrs. Griswold's, "We are a very poor organization financially", and are therefore not in a position to compensate our speakers as we should like to do, but we do feel that we could bear your gasoline bill and your hotel expense for the trip to McAllen. This is cer-tainly asking a great deal of you, but we shall appreciate your helping us more than we can tell you.

How are things going in your and my country, Nicar-agua? I do not see much in the papers about her. Was delighted to read that the women are campaigning for equal suffrage dur-ing the preparation of a new Consitution, which was to have begun when Congress convened on December 15th. of last year.

Yours very truly,

Elsie L. Dees [Handwritten - Signature]
(Mrs. W.W. Dees)
State Director General
Pan American Pound Tables.
