J.B. Atherton P.O. Box 2200 Honolulu 5, Hawaii

Professor Albert Einstein Princeton, New Jersey

Dear Professor Einstein, I am enclosing my check for fifty dollar ($50.00) as a contribution to the educational work of the Emergency Committee of Atomic Scientists, in answer to your letter of June 8, 1946 addressed to my father, Mr. Frank C. Atherton. My father passed away about a year ago. However, as a graduate of Princeton University (1933) and a student of Professor Smyth in the physics department I have been and am naturally greatly interested in the problems and peaceful uses of atomic energy. Sincerely yours, J.B. Atherton
