From Wayland Street, Providence, Rhode Island. Page 1 dated, January 13, page 13 continues on, January 14.. Gilman is preparing for the birth of her child. She also writes of her work, the 1884 election "...the world spectacle of a nation like this – Men – Christian, Civilized, Intelligent Men by the million; being reduced to the helpless and pitiful alternative of 'a choice between two evils' as an instance of popular government..." Gilman suggests works Lane might use in an upcoming English poetry course for young people including several by Robert Browning and agrees to loan books by Lewis Carroll and others.
