December 14, 1971

Dear Kate: Just a quick reply to your letter about the Women's Center.

I didn't, as you notice, attend your Executive Comittee meeting today. I know you will let me know how the New York Public Library visit and the exhibits, including the Overbury and Holden ones come out.

I am glad you are working with the Undergraduate Association and think you might well do a program in the Spring for them. Don't let Jenny Bremer influence you too much here, since she has gotten herself in a very awkward position with the black students. They are better off than she thinks they are, but there are still problems.

I am glad you are meeting with Jane Moorman, Hariette Mogul and Jenny Bremer on the question of abortion counseling. I do think we ought to use the resources of the city instead of putting our money into this, except as we do it through the Health Service, but if you present a different kind of proposal I will certainly listen to that.

Thank you so much for all you are doing.

Cordially,

I ,/ rt 3. eterson
