Selected Works of Mao Tse-tung

[Extracted from Mao Tse-tung lun-wen-chi]

Dear Comrade Browder:

Taking advantage of the visit of a comrade, I am sending this letter to you, honoured Comrade Browder, the good friend of the Chinese people and the leader of the American people.

We have heard from several American comrades and from other quarters that the American Communist Party and the great mass of the American people are profoundly concerned about China's anti-Japanese struggle, and they have already aided us in several ways. This gives us the feeling that our struggle is not an isolated one, that we are receiving heroic assistance from abroad; at the same time, we have the feeling that, when we obtain victory. this victory will be of great assistance to the struggle of the American people for liberation.

Today's world is on the eve of a great explosion, and the working class of the whole world, as well as all the peoples seeking liberation, must certainly unite and carry on a common struggle.

Revolutionary greetings!
