Description: 2 pages (front and back), 9.5 x 7.5 inches, Privy Council Office, Whitehall, England, September 22, 1936. Exceptional letter signed "J. Ramsay MacDonald," written at a time when his mental health collapsed, to British Philosopher L.P. Jacks, who had proposed a "demilitarized" League of Nations, in part: "...I am willing to try anything that will strengthen the League, but if we took the line of your letter, we would cause a great shock amongst the smaller nations who would need a good deal of explanation before they would accommodate themselves to the change. The position is a very serious one and the meeting which is going on in Geneva...ought to be used for the purpose of sounding opinion...before we finally make up our minds..." Excellent condition.

I am very pleased that you took the time to consult me on the price before just adding the additional shipping cost onto my credit card. Ordering things on-line, one runs into all kinds of less-than-considerate business practices... Thanks again for taking the time to contact me. I'm looking forward to the book. - Eric P.
