This letter would not produce donations (like Hyatt may have) since it
explicitly states "do not send money" (the earliest in the archive to do
so). It would not get any donations anyway since it is post Send-d-Dime (1935).
However note it does have a controlled name & town list. Provided by
Zack Germroth. From Ebay lot 170005615270 closing July 14, 2006. Entered
