Fellow Worker:

            Yours of the 18th at hand and contents of same have been carefully noted.

            Am glad to hear of the interest that is being taken in the organization by the zinc miners in Iowa, Illinois, and Wisconsin.

            Read this morning in the Los Angeles Times that several I. W. W. members was arrested in Chicago for Anti War Agitation. I would appreciate you giving full details of any such matters, as we are vitally interested down here.

            With best wishes, I am

            Yours for Industrial Freedom,
