Mrs. Lila Meade Valentine, 2338 Monument Avenue, Richmond, Va. My dear Mrs. Valentine:- I am sending you a clipping which was sent me by the author because, since he is a Virginia man, I thought you would like to know him although probably he has written to you himself. You see I always feel, whenever any prominent person comes before me, it is a good thing to send the name to the State President. I passed through your State in the night a few days ago and thought of you all and wondered how you were getting on and hope that everything looks as promising with you as it seems to all over the country. I have just been down to Texas and I could hardly have believed the great change which has come over the attitude of peoples mind during the last two years. Virginia certainly did itself proud in its delegation in the Parade and I am sure the inspiration received from it will redound to the work in the State itself. All our attention is now turned toward Ohio which seems to be the important center and it is very gratifying to me to see the great interest in some of the States in their desire to assist. This is particularly true of Massachusetts and New York where between fourteen and fifteen different persons have been sent into Ohio and all the salaries and expenses have been paid by the different States which have sent the worker.
