From New International, Vol.5 No.1, January 1939, p.2.
Transcribed & marked up by Einde O’Callaghan for ETOL.
AN old-timer, Wm.P.K. Gates, Wakefield, Kansas, writes us:
I have been a subscriber to and enthusiastic reader of The New International beginning with its first issue ... and have enjoyed great benefit and satisfaction from my reading of the incomparably excellent articles in that promoter and defender of genuine and unadulterated revolutionary Marxism ... Every member of the working class ... should for his own enlightenment subscribe to and help support The New International ... You are doing fine; keep it up!
And, from thousands of miles across the sea:
For the last few months have been contemplating taking up a collection on behalf of The New International but unfortunately local calls have been heavy on the comrades. The last issue of The New International decided me to act at once. It would be a tragedy if The New International went out of existence, and it strikes me that the comrades in America are not doing their very best to boost the sales of the magazine in view of the very large population they have to draw on.
You will find enclosed a draft for 15 dollars as a first instalment, and I hope to be able to collect a further donation to forward next year.
