Dear Sir and Comrade,
I am about to arrange one or two large and interesting public affairs (of a popular educational character); one of them most probably with the Hon. Wm. Jennings Bryan as the main speaker (possibly a symposium) under the auspices of above society – which I am now reincorporating. – Mr. William English Walling, who is much interested in the work I am doing is cooperating. – I think the matter might be of some interest to you and with that end in view I would be very glad if you could speak a few minutes time (say – about 15 or 20 minutes) – time and place at your convenience – when I could advise you and speak with you a few words regarding cause(?).
(over)
With highest regards and appreciation for the good work you are and have been doing in the cause of humanity – and hoping to hear from you – believe me to be ____ yours
Very faithfully and fraternally,
J.J. Vossburgh
Execut. Secretary

P.S. I have arranged the Tom Mann - Boudin debate and other large lectures and ______
