Dear Miss Geffen1:

The enclosures3 were forwarded to me by Miss Cather, with the request that they be sent to you. The recent death of her favorite brother4 has been a great shock to Miss Cather, and a great many things have been neglected. She has not been in New York2 and I forwarded the ballots to her. They were returned to me today.

Very truly yours, Sarah J. Bloom5 Secretary Member
