Rare World War II-dated TLS, one page, 8.5 x 11, American Labor Conference on International Affairs letterhead, June 21, 1944. Brief letter to Carolyn Willyoung Stagg of Alfred A. Knopf, Inc., in full: "Thank you very much for sending me a copy of Joseph Kessel's Army of Shadows. I am looking forward to reading it."
