Writes that Samuel Castleton has not yet found a publisher. Remarks that he will send Stone a copy of the letter that he mailed to Samuel Castleton regarding his proposed book about Eugene V. Debs on 12/10/1944. Says that he saw where Stone interviewed Louis Kopelin, who used to work for the APPEAL TO REASON. Writes that Louis Kopelin was subscripted and had his picture on the front page of the APPEAL TO REASON after it came out in support of the war.

Asks that Stone tell him if he interviewed August Claessens at the Rand School yet. Suggests that Stone interview James Oneal who was a member of the Socialist Party from the beginning.
