Mr. Frank Bohn,
Nat. Sec’y, S.L.P.
New York, N.Y.

Dear Comrade:

I have just received a copy of the Daily People of the 7th inst. containing the resolutions adopted by the Executive Committee of the S.L.P. on the unity question, and I drop you this line to extend congratulations to your board and to say that the resolutions, in spirit and purport, have my hearty concurrence. No matter what differences there may be they are not of sufficient account to prevent joint nominations and political unity all along the line in the National, State, and Local campaigns this fall. I shall do all I can to have the Socialist Party accept the resolutions of the Socialist Labor Party in the spirit in which they are offered. I am writing National Sec’y Barnes and sending an article to the Appeal to Reason, urging favorable action.

Earnestly hoping for the successful outcome of this move and for a united and vigorous campaign against the common enemy, I remain,

Yours Fraternally,
E.V. Debs
