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
