- 2 pages. Translated Summary: Letter to Rubin Saltzman November 11 from Henri Slovès, concerning the founding conference of the Alveltiker Yiddish Culture Congress YKUF [IKUF]. Begins, "Yesterday we shipped three cases of the report of the Congress meeting." Discusses the difficulties and expense of shipping them as baggage [the 'report' is in the form of a 400-page book]. Describes the workings of the office in Paris, and the need for more financial support. Reminds Saltzman that at the meeting it was decided that at least half of the yearly contribution was to be sent by the end of November. Handwritten note at bottom reads, "I'm writing about this also to Chaver Sultan." The Parisian organizing committee headed by Slovès, Comité D'Organisation du Congrès Mondial de la Culture Juive, is located at 55 Rue du Faubourg Montmartre, Paris (9eme).

- 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.
