Dear Miss Schwimmer:

Your name and address were given to me by Miss Woodman, the Secretary of the English branch of the Women’s International League. I am expecting to arrive in New York on June 4th (Monday) by steamer ‘Columbus’ from Bremen.

I am English, I coma from London, but I am visiting a niece who lives in Budapest. I am travelling through to San Francisco and to Victoria, B.C. to visit friends.

I have no friends in New York but I am booking a room at the Martha Washington Hotel 29 East 29th Street, where I once stayed before.

I am a very keen member of the W.I.L. and I feel it is one of the very best channels for obtaining international peace. I have met the members in Munich, in Vienna and they have been kindness itself to myself and cousin who was with me. I have paid a visit to the office here and found Madame Vambery and Madam de Szirmai most charming. I should very much like to meet some of your members when I am in New York and hear of the work you are doing.

I expect to stay 5 or 6 days, as I have to arrange a good many things along my journey to San Francisco.

Fraternally yours,

(Miss) Winifred Indra [? or Judson – Edith Wynner]
