Dear Reinhold:

As you know, I have been working for some time on a multi-volume history to be entitled The Age of Roosevelt. The first volume is due to come out in the fall. If you do not mind, I would like to dedicate this volume to you. The reasons for this are self- evident; and I can only add that friend- ship with you and Ursula has meant more for Marian and me that I can easily say, or than this inadequate gesture can express.

Yours ever,

Mr. Reinhold Niebuhr
606 West 122nd Street
New York City, N.Y.
