Francis N. Balch Counsellor at Law 130 Prince Street. Jamaica Plain Massachusetts

March 10, 1947

Professor Albert Einstein, Chairman, Emergency Committee of Atomic Scientists, 90 Nassau Street, Princeton, N.J.

Dear Professor Einstein:

I regret exceedingly that my age, coupled with the poor state of my health and finances, renders it impossible for me to make more than a nominal contribution to your work.

Practically, I suppose it is an empty gesture on my part: but I like to make it, so enclose my check for $1.00

Yours very truly, Francis N. Balch
