February 22, 1940.


Dear Irving:

     I have been trying to figure out the answer to your letter of the 16th Inst but cannot remember anything of this period.
     In June 1896 Mother and I went to Europe and stayed until Fall. We came back to Sharon, Pa., where we stayed all winter and I went to school.  We came back to Chgo in March 1897.  this whole period to 1900 or after is only familiar to me for what i did and where I went to school.
     Part of that time Judge Francis S. Wilson lived with him in the Landon Apartment Bldg ? near Hull House.  Also I think he was a partner about that time.  If you care to write him his address is #30 North Michigan Av, Chgo.
     I feel sure that William O. Thompson (now Hotel Warwick, New York City) was a partner at this time.  If you would write him I believe he would give you what you need.
     Also I think Morris St. P. Thomas (now 100 West Monroe St., Chicago) was a partner during this period.
     The style of the firm around 1900 was Darrow, Thomas A. Thompson.
     I think Miss Gertrude Barnum could probably give you as much information about this period as anyone.  I think she lived at the Langdon apartments or at Hull House during this time.  She now lives in California but I do not have her address.  I would suggest you write her a letter in care of her brother ? Harry H. Barnum, 105 West Adams St., Chicago and I am satisfied he will forward it.  I think she lives in one of the Los Angeles suburbs and you could probably find it to advantage to see her.
     I think he ran for Congress during this time and was defeated.  He also ran for the State Legislature and was elected.
     I am sorry I do not have the information you need.  I think I can do better on almost any other period. At any rate I hope you will write me the next time you get stuck and I'll try.
     It's been a long time since we have had hot sunshine.
     Best wishes.
