4819 Greenwood Avenue
Chicago 15, Illinois 
April 6, 1948 

Dr. Harold C. Urey Emergency Committee of Atomic Scientists, Inc. 118 Nassau Street Princeton, N. J.

Dear Dr. Urey:

  Your letter April first with its enclosure is one to which I cannot be unresponsive. Freedom of speech and freedom of research, the liberty of the individual and the free progress of science are causes to which all good citizens must be dedicated.  I am very happy to make a contribution to the Emergency Committee of Atomic Scientists, Incorporated, earmarked for the Bulletin of the Atomic scientists,  as you suggest.  I regret I shall not be in New York and cannot attend the dinner. 
  By this letter I give to the Emergency Committee of Atomic Scientists, inc., for this purpose six shares of the M. A. Hanna Company common stock at $82 a share. (This closed last night according to the hall Street Journal at 80 bid, 84 asked.)  By a letter to Mr. W. S. Davis,  Assistant Secretary,  First National Bank of Chicago,  which holds these securities in a custody account for me,  a copy of which  letter is enclosed, I have instructed him to deliver these shares to the Emergency Committee at 118 Nassau Street, Princeton.  
  I cannot close without telling you how much pleasure it gave me tohave you and Crey at dinner on Sunday, and I hope it is the first of many occasions at which I shall have that pleasure.  In my view 4819 Greenwood Avenue has become increasingly valuable through having acquired such nice neighbors. 

Sincerely yours,
