Mrs. Florence L. C. Kitchelt,
The League of Nations Association, Inc.,
134, Orange Street,
New Haven, Conn.

My dear Mrs. Kitchelt,

    I was delighted to receive your letter of May 27th with the interesting account of your model Disarmament Conference. I have today received the full scenario which I hope to find the time to study in greater detail. Your experiment seems to have been most successful and I cannot tell you how pleased we are to think that you were able to make such good use of the material which we have been sending you. I wish that more people would be as enterprising. We are sending out to all our organisations an account of your model Conference. I hope that perhaps others will follow your example.

Very sincerely yours,

[signed] Mary A. Dingman
