Notes, topics or text 

Roback thanks BR for his prompt permission to quote from his imaginary obituary. He states that he is no more a professing Jew than BR is a professing Christian and refers to BR's Why I Am Not a Christian argument.

Also in file: document .183540 which includes a P.S. about Khrushchev forbidding Ilya Ehrenburg to publish the details of the deaths of the hundreds of Yiddish writers in USSR, as well as newspaper clippings: documents .183541-.183544.

Roback knows Jessie Whitehead, who seems to be writing her memoirs or a family chronicle. He refers to A.N. Whitehead's "chanting in speech".
