Letter from Julius Rosenberg to Ethel Rosenberg.
Summary:
He writes to her upon receiving the news that it is ordered that they be executed on their 14th wedding anniversary. He meditates on the reasons behind the government's disregard of the public outcry their death sentence has inspired. He reminds her that they know that they are innocent, so that by all rights they should be allowed to go free. He urges that they focus on gaining their own freedom, not on the welfare of their friends and family.
