The first letter, from 1940, expresses appreciation for Goldman's address at the 25th Annual Convention of Hadassah. (It was a rousing speech in which Goldman asked: "Will American Jewry...rise to its full stature, or will this giant among the Jewries of the world fetter its own hands and feet? A timid Jewry in America is no asset to world Jewry. (...) We are becoming habituated to defeat, whispering, begging. It is not ours to beg for tolerance. We must demand justice.") The second letter, from 1941, thanks Goldman for sending him a copy of his published addresses and expresses the opinion that his "addresses represent the issues of undying values and the determination to make them prevail."
