University of Virginia Office of Professor of Secondary Education
April 24, 1916.
Mrs. Mary C. B. Munford, Richmond, Virginia.
Dear Mrs. Munford:
I have your letter of April 21st and while I am not over optimistic, I really believe that we are going to win in 1918 though I realize that we cannot win anything without hard work.
My suggestion is that we mature our plan of campaign a little earlier and I hope that there will not be so many conflicting things at the University and that we may all go in with the single aim of "putting across" this measure.
I shall be very glad indeed to have you present the matter to the Summer School and will arrange a meeting for you anytime you desire between June 26th and July 1st. I think it will be better to have a special meeting to which all Virginia teachers are invited rather than to attempt to present it at our General Assembly Hour where the time is limited and there are a number of people from outside of the State. We usually have had such a meeting and I see no objection to it. If those opposed should ask for an assembly meeting I, of course, would grant their request in fairness, but I hardly think they will do so.
I hope to be in Richmond for a day or two within the next two weeks and will try to see you when there.
