Mr Clarence Darrow

1537 East 60th Street, Chicago, Illinois.

Dear Mr Darrow:

I agree with every word in your letter of November 25th. In fact, in three brief paragraphs, I think you have written a sufficient text book on the producing of pictures. Thank you very much for troubling to answer me.

There is one thing you overlooked. That is, may I have permission to use your name in my proposed Saturday Evening Post advertisement, along with the other names on the proof I sent you?

Cordially yours,

Carl Laemmle
