The Editors
The New Masses

Dear Sirs:

Please allow me to send you my congratulations. I have been waiting a long time for the day when your magazine would be no more. It has come. Your decision to fold up is the first contribution which you have made to a free American culture in more than ten years. Independent, free thinking American writers will hail the end of theNew Masses.

Best wishes for a long silence.

James T. Farrell
