- Saltzman's reply to the letter of November 8, 1937. Translated Summary: Received their letter, and also received the thousand copies of the Congress report. Promises they will attempt to sell them quickly as possible in order to be able to send the full sum. Promises to inform Olgin that they expect $300 from him, and to take up with his committee their request for more funds. He is confident they can come up with another $100. Closes by saying their newly organized committee awaits word of IKUF/YKUF’s plans.

- 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.
