- 3 pages. Translated Summary: Apologizes for not having written and not having settled up for the literature on his account. Has been practically living in his car since he left New York. Describes difficulty finding a room in Miami, having to work six days a week, etc. Calculates that he owes $36.19 and sending the accounting. Reports his various activities, either to try sell the literature he'd taken on account or to otherwise promote the Order's aims: Stopping over in Washington where a previously arranged lecture with Moshe Katz preempted his evening event; stopping in Richmond where they did not know he was coming, but telephoned their members and 25 members came out. Has given a talk [in Florida] about Palestine and has formed a class of 10 people. Hopes to be in New York in April. Saltzman's reply is on January 14, 1946.
- 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.
