Description:
Letter from Julius Rosenberg to Ethel Rosenberg.
Summary:
Judge Kaufman just ruled they should be executed in about 50 days. Julius reassures Ethel that of course Manny has already begun to contest this order. He protests against "the hirelings of the Hearst press" who have filled the papers with articles against them. He believes this demonstrates that "there exists in our country a 'phantom' Goebbels type general staff with representatives on major newspapers." After a few mentions of minor issues (writing to the children, Manny's visit, etc.), he closes by meditating on the emotional trial they are undergoing.
