Dear Comrade: [form letter from the Communist Party, District 3]

[Philadelphia]: [Communist Party], [ca. 1935]. First edition. A form letter from Communist Party, District 3 Organizer, Pat Toohey, regarding the Communist Party’s goal to “mobilize and unite 50,000 workers into a mighty demonstration of proletarian unity on Reyburn Plaza.” He encourages comrades to help mobilize this force by speaking to workers organizations, organizing mass meetings, distributing circulars, leaflets and May Day literature, and raising funds. He concludes, “A tremendous demonstration at Reyburn Plaza on May Day and two packed halls on April 30th at Academcy of Music and Olympia Arena will be our answer to the forces of reaction in Philadelphia and a great step toward the Peoples Front against fascism and war.” Toohey later became a member of the Central Committee of the Communist Party and ran for Pennsylvania State treasurer on the CP ticket.
