April 28, 1919. Miss Mary Elizabeth Pidgeon, Care, Miss Gertrude Weil, 200 Chestnut St., Goldsboro, N.C. My dear Miss Pidgeon:- Your letter received and was wonderfully interesting and encouraging. Mrs. Valentine was delighted with the work done in Roanoke. We have just had a letter from Mrs. Whitner in which she says that she thinks Roanoke will go "over the top" by the end of this week possibly. Isn't that great? We have asked Mrs. Shuler to let us have you again in June, but she does not know just now how that this can be accomplished but we are hoping for the best. Mrs. Whitner wants you for a month in her near-by towns if this is possible. Enclosed find check for $122.01 for salary and expenses as per your bill. We do so wish we could have you from now until after next February, and believe that you could be of untold help in our work. Of course, our treasury would hardly permit this but we surely DO want you for at least two months, beginning the middle of June if Mrs. Shuler can possibly let us have you. Mrs. Cowles is writing a synopsis of your work for the Woman Citizen as we think this is too good not to be noised abroad. With best wishes for your good luck in North Carolina from the headquarters force, and hoping to have you with us again in the near future, I am. Cordially yours, Ida M. Thompson Headquarters Secty.
