Dear Friends:

I thank you sincerely for the interest you have shown in our work, and for your generous support. We need all possible help in carrying to our fellow citizens the facts of atomic energy, and in explaining their vast implications in the fields of international relations and world peace. My colleagues and I accept with gratitude your cooperation.

Faithfully yours,
[Signature]
