Description

A letter from Jack Belden to Henrietta Thompson. About the Walkout, Belden writes to Thompson: “The only way such a small affair could have significance is a from a human standpoint where it could be fictionalized into a symbol.” On the whole, Belden seems to wish to convey that he regards Thompson's project with ambivalence. As he does in all of the letters in this collection, Belden refers to his poverty, here he also mentions being badly treated by his publishers.
