Dr. Albert Einstein

     New Jersey

Mr dear Dr. Einstein:

  Your telegram answered my own conviction that the atomic bomb is the first and overwhelming concern of every understanding person. 
  We are at present organizing a committee in Los Angeles, stressing particularly the responsibility of the churches in what we believe is basically a moral problem.
  I am very glad to send 200.- toward the fund of the scientists, for in what they are doing lies my chief hope for the future.  I hope the Church will awake to a similar sense of urgency.  
                              Yours very sincerely,
                (Mrs. John)  Helen Marston Beardsley
