My dear Rabbi Landman:
I have learned with pleasure that the American Hebrew Medal for the Promotion of Better Understanding between Christian and Jew will be presented this year to Archbishop Edward J. Hanna of San Francisco. This distinguished Prelate has done much to promote that comity, resulting from better understanding, which forwards the objective this award has in view. I wish to congratulate, through you, the committee making the award and its worthy recipient.
[Rabbi Isaac Landman, 71 West 47th Street, New York City]
