Fantastic Albert Einstein typed letter signed ''A. Einstein'' upon his personal stationery, dated 10 June 1939 from Princeton, New Jersey. While WWII raged in Europe, Einstein writes to a Dr. Epstein, thanking him for the work done on behalf of Jewish refugees. Reads in full: ''My dear doctor Epstein: May I offer my sincere congratulations to you on the splendid work you have undertaken on behalf of the refugees during Dedication Week. The power of resistance which has enabled the Jewish people to survive for thousands of years has been based to a large extent on traditions of mutual helpfulness. In these years of affliction our readiness to help one another is being put to an especially severe test. May we stand this test as well as did our fathers before us. We have no other means of self-defense than our solidarity and our knowledge that the cause for which we are suffering is a momentous and sacred cause. It must be a source of deep gratification to you to be making so important a contribution toward rescuing our persecuted fellow-Jews from their calamitous peril and leading them toward a better future.'' Letter on 1pp. measures 8.5'' x 11'' with expected folds and three small .5'' closed tears to left margin, overall very good. Also includes a 1937 typed letter signed from Fiorello LaGuardia to Epstein, discussing his help in unification between the Brooklyn and New York Federations of the Jewish Appeal.
