3912 Neptune Avenue Brooklyn, New York October 13, 1947

Professor Albert Einstein, Chairman Emergency Committee of Atomic Scientists Princeton, New Jersey

Dear Professor Einstein:

  Thank you for your communication of October.  I am sorry that my own contribution to your fund is, of necessity, so pitifully small.  But I am planning to present your appeal for fund, to the faculty of Abraham Lincoln High School, at our very next meeting.  
  I hope I am not altogether out of order in suggesting, that it would be very helpful if your committee could prepare an impartial appraisal of the Baruch plan and Russian criticism of it.  For at present most of the thinking of our teachers on this subject is founded on biased newspaper accounts of one side or the other.  
          Sincerely yours,
            Philip Shorr
