Typed letter signed: "Harry" in blue ink. 8x11. New York, January 26, no year. To "Dear Jule", in part: "The view from the pinnacle is grim these days. If you're a De Sapio there is an Edelstein to cloud your vista. If you're an Adenauer, the breath of a Julius Klein is hot on your neck. It's almost enough to make a man thirst for obscurity. [...] Meanwhile, back at the chancellory in Bonn old Doc Adenauer has contrived, but barely, to survive a series of conferences with Nahum Goldmann, the head of the American Jewish Congress and a delegate-at-large from the American Jewish Committee. Ben Epstein of the Anti-Defamation League is en route, but the hell with him. The old man had to truck off to the Vatican for a breather, but now he is going up against Julius Klein, who is come to Bonn bearing a sheaf of communiques from a covey of Washington solons, including such as Mannie Celler, Jack Javits, Barry Goldwater, Styles Bridges, Estes Kefauver and a former president of B'nai B'rith. [...] There has been no word from Jack Kennedy or Lyndon Johnson or Stuart Symington so I am led to deduce that there isn't much of a political livelihood to be made by telling Adenauer what he ought to do about the Hitler jugend alumni and the boys who beat the rap at Nuremburg." HARRY BLAKE was a member of Julius Klein's political staff, possibly a secretary. He wrote many letters of correspondence to Klein's contacts as well as going along on visits regarding political matters. JULIUS KLEIN (1901-1984) was an American, journalist, spy, business executive and United States Army general. During World War I he was an American spy in Germany. After the war, Klein worked as a criminal reporter for The State Herald in Chicago and later as Hollywood executive. He is also credited with being the first person to run radio broadcasts in German in the USA. Klein's connection to the House of David as a descendant of Rabbi Meir Katzenellenbogen is illustrated in The Unbroken Chain, by Neil Rosenstein. In 1947, Julius Klein was elected the National Commander of the Jewish War Veterans of the United States of America. Highly toned. Darkening around edges. Corners rounded and creased. Inch-long tear in top margin. Light tears on bottom edge. Normal mailing folds.
