Rec'd May 15, from H. Dubas [?] Ret'journal [?] to her 5/18/48 COPY ANTI*DEFAMATION LEAGUEE Willkie Memorial Building 20 West 40th Street New York 18, N.Y.

May 13, 1948

Dear and Esteemed Dr. Einstein, I am privileged to have received a form letter sent out to the Emergency Committee of Atomic Scientists, and enclose my check for $10, in response to its appeal. Money, although an important adjunct to any project, is not the only medium through which success can be achieved. In this instance, it is much more important that our citizenry become aware, and involved. As one who believes in principles of unity, brotherhood and cooperation, I am devoting myself, professionally, to a lifetime dedicated to projects which will realize those objectives. My aim is to cut away what I term, "Hatelerism" from the social realm. The work I do has been planned so to do. In my travels throughout New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Delaware, I meet may community leaders, such as school superintendents, clergymen, heads of veterans groups, etc. It seems to me that I could at the same time carry to these people some message from your group. It is mutually related anyway. On June 25, 26 and 27, I expect to be in Princeton to attend a convention of the Council of Democracy. At that time I should be very pleased and flattered to be able to meet with you and discuss the above as a project for our next season, beginning in the fall. If these dates are inconvenient, I will be happy to commute to Princeton, at some mutually agreeable date.

Very sincerely,

S/ S. H. KAPLAN Seymour H. Kaplan
