Description:
Letter from Julius Rosenberg to Emanuel Bloch.
Summary:
Julius brings to Manny's attention an article in the NY Times about the House's rejection of a Death Penalty Provision for reasons that might help the Rosenbergs' case. He allows himself "a few pertinent observations" in response to Max Lerner's column in the NY Post. He criticizes his failure to provide evidence to support his belief that the Rosenbergs were guilty (other than the perjured testimony of the Greenglasses). He also criticizes the fact that, even though Werner claims to be a liberal, he was not supporting the Rosenbergs, who are victims of the widespread political issues Werner usually criticizes.
