Letter is marked "Private".

BR strongly wishes that Dr. Schweitzer will be able to attend their demonstration. "On September 9th of this year we are holding a great demonstration at the Air Ministry, in Whitehall, London, where Air Commadore Magill has his office. It was he who said at the trial of our six colleagues that he would be quite prepared to 'press the button', even though this would involve the deaths of several hundred million people."

"Our demonstration is intended to suggest that the Hydrogen-bomber and rocket bases under the control of men such as this are our Buchenwalds and our Auschwitzes, we wish to say that such things cannot be done in our name."
