Autograph Letter Signed, 4to, n.p., Apr 30, 1963

The letter reads, “ Dear Mr… your letter was forwarded to me, evidently in a most roundabout way. I am afraid I can’t give you any continuity on the fight to get Siqueiros out of prison. The last I heard was a drive to get the Times ad published in a Mexico City paper. I gathered that enough signers gave permission for their names to be reused enough money was raised and that I was done. I don’t recall, however, who was active in this project. My friend Robert has been involved in the Siqueiros issue more recently than I. He may have more to tell you….” Signed, “Jack Levine”. Levine refers to Mexican artist David Siqueiros (1896-1974) who worked with Diego Rivera.
