- Saltzman reply to Slovès. Translated Summary: "Received your letter of February 16, addressed to Chaverim Olgin, Sultan, Epstein, and myself. Despite agreeing on a number of justifiable complaints, I feel your letter makes too much of them, and there is an overly impatient tone in it." Saltzman goes on to describe difficulties in forming and establishing the group, says there were difficulties in other parts of the movement, and assures Slovès that there will yet be good news from the United States. He says there has not been time to raise the $1500 they have pledged, but promised to take up the matter up with the rest of the group, who have not yet seen the letter. He then talks about preparations for the press in New York, and ends with another promise to send money.

The Jewish People’s Fraternal Order was the largest ‘national’ section of the International Workers Order (IWO) which focused on cultural awareness and celebration, mutual support especially in health insurance coverage, and anti-fascist activities. The IWO also gave particular emphasis to supporting the rights and interests of African Americans.
