Mrs. B. B. Munford, 503 East Grace Street, Richmond, Virginia,

My dear Mrs. Munford, -

Miss Lucy and Mrs. Kyle have been working on the college matter, and have doubtless interviewed all the alumni they wish to ask to join the delegation at the University on the 11th. Arrangements have been made to bring the best influences to bear upon Colston Blackford, to get him there in a state of enthusiasm. I do not know, however, wheher he will be able to go or not, as he is very busy. The committee can better inform you of their success with the other gentlemen whom they interviewed, as I have not seen them since they started out from my office on that errand. For myself, it is impossible for me to give any time to seeing these men, as my every moment and every thought are pledged elsewhere, - to interests too long neglected for social service, - I fear, too, that it is too late now to talk of alumni leadership. I still believe that the only hope for favorable action by the legislature lies in keeping the women in the joint use of laboratories and library, but at this late day I cannot see how an effective organization can be formed which will put the alumni in the lead, nominally with the women well organized for work in the background. I hope, however, I am wrong, and that all the success your earnest efforts deserve may attend you. Cordially, Anna L. Jones
