Description: 2 pages, 10.5 x 8 inches, Washington, D.C., August 28, 1922. Written to Frederick R. Courdert, powerful international law attorney, on America's initiative in helping to rebuild post-war Europe, in part: "...There is also the fact that Europe has no realization of the necessity to meet certain primary questions on her responsibility, and before this realization comes to the people of Europe, they will probably need to go deeper into the ditch than they are now...When Europe has realized that America cannot be called upon for sacrifice until they, who are infinitely more interested than we are, have made their sacrifice, then I hope it will be possible to secure support at this end..." Horizontal folds, one file hole near the top left corner, several pinholes, and a paperclip impression; very good(-) condition.

I couldn't believe how fast you sent me this wonderful item! I didn't expect it to have anything on children's cookery (my focus), but because Juliet Corson is SO important, I bought it. What a surprise to find a "Boys' and Girls' Kitchen" column, and a tiny personal fact about J's childhood. I hit the lottery, so to speak. I'm ordering tons of diamonds to fall from the sky on you some lovely warm day. Don't I wish I could do that... - Barbara Abbott
