Mr. Paul Darrow
5844 Stony Island Avenue
Chicago, Illinois.

Dear Mr. Darrow:

I have your letter of the 13th with reference to the text of "Clarence Darrow for the Defense." I am interested in Mr. Stone, as you know, but it is a purely personal interest; I am also interested in the book, but only because I am an admirer of your father and of Mr. Stone, having contributed nothing to it by way of information or composition.

I don't know why you write to me on the subject, but I thank you for the letter.

Very truly yours,

Maurice Berkson.

Hon Clarence Darrow Esq
1536 East 60th St
