Draft TLS signed “J. M. Wainwright,” one onionskin page, 8 x 10.5, stamp-dated January 2, 1946. A hand-corrected draft for a fundraising form letter. In part: “During the war so recently ended by Allied victory, our troops fought to establish four freedoms throughout the world. In our quest for a fifth freedom—freedom from disease—victory is still to be won, and the fight must continue unabated in laboratories and research centers everywhere…In the forefront of this fight is The National Foundation for Infantile Paralysis, which begins its annual campaign for funds on January 14, the birthday of Franklin Delano Roosevelt, who during his life led the crusade against this disease.” Wainwright adds the campaign’s end date between two lines in his own hand, “and terminates on Jan. 30.” Staple holes and tears near the top, otherwise fine condition. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
