This is Ben Reitman's only existing letter to Eve Adams. It is dated "1933" but was written in 1934 in response to Eve's letter of August 15th, 1934.

Ben Reitman to Eve Adams, 32 E. State Street, Chicago, IL, August 27, 1933. The original letter is dated “1933” but Martha Lynn Reis and Jonathan Ned Katz agree that it was written in 1934. The evidence for this is that Reitman refers in this letter to Eve's letter of the 15th. The only letter from Eve to Reitman after 1929 that is dated the 15th is on August 15, 1934.

This document may be in the Reitman Papers, Series III, Box 23, folder 274, Archives, University of Illinois, Chicago, Library.

This transcript of Eve's letter was made by Martha Lynn Reiss and sent by her to Eran Zahavy, who sent it to Jonathan Ned Katz.
