Keith Thompson to publish her "letter to him of January 8, 1958 pertaining to the 'war crimes trials' and the case of Grand Admiral Karl Doenitz." Below, she pens a lengthy note, initialed "T. C.," in part: "I know you will use your best discretion about the excerpts you will use in your book from my letter, such as eliminating anything personal…After all, as a patriotic American I have enough enemies as it is! Moreover, I don't want any more punitive visits & malicious assessments by the Infernal Revenue, such as occurred not too long ago because I was attacking Communism 'two hard,' to use their own expression, damn them!" Affixed to a cardstock sheet and in fine condition, with trimmed edges.
