Title Letter from Heriot Clarkson to Francis O. Clarkson
Date September 28, 1938
Description Expresses his wishes for the Mass Meeting pamphlet to be published and seems to suggest that everything hinges on the public being able to read the pamphlet for themselves, even if it was "hard money to spend" to get it in the newspaper. Clarkson says that pamphlet combat "unjustifiable attack" of Charles Ross and Jonathan Daniels. He goes on to call Ross a "pygmy Hitler" and says that he needed to be collared just as Europe should have collared Hitler when they had the chance.
Commentary Shows Clarkson's ugly side as well as the how the attacks were becoming more personal and less about compensation. Box 10, folder 539.
