New Milford, Conn., March 30, 1941.

Dear Professor Carleton,

Dany thanks for the copy of your address on

"Steady America." It is encouraging to have such news from

senator Pepper's pocket borough! Your address is marked by

close knowledge of those parts of the world which our crusading

world-savers propose to make over to suit American ideas of

government and private conduct. It is lack of such knowledge

that permits our dreamers to endulge in flights of fancy without

any checks from any quarter. As an American citizen eager to see

our country strong and well-defended, I heartily welcome your

calm analysis of the world and the perils that lurk in our

efforts to unuerwrkte the British empire and at the same time

make democracy prevail everywhere from Moscow to -atavia!

I hope that despite discouragements you will keep up the good work.

Millions of people are with you in spirit but powerful organs of

opinion are enlisted in the crusade. What we are in for no one

can say now, but every brake on rashness is to the good for


Yours sincerely,
