Dollar, Chairman, Arrangement Committee, 510 Pearl Street, Camden, N.J.”  Gompers writes: “Dear Sir, Your favor of June the 25th at hand and contents noted.  You say that the First Methodist Church of Camden is arranging for a series of meetings from October, 1914, to March, 1915, six in all, at which addresses will be delivered on current topics, and you desire to know if it will be possible for me to be the speaker at one of the meetings.  I cannot now say definitely whether I can accept your invitation, but would be glad to have you write me again about the middle of next December, when I hope to be in a position to give you a definite reply.  Very truly yours, Sam’l Gompers, President, American Federation of Labor.  [The following postscript is written in Gompers’ hand: P.S.]   Write me in Sept. 1914.  S.G.”
