Approximately 100 pp. of hand written letters and editorials, by Ernest H. Behrens. Mostly 6" x 9", written in script with pencil. A self-styled "Publius", the author signed letters with names as: "Lindbergh Jr.", "Boy Scout", "Robin Hood", "Anti Tory", and "Paul Revere Jr.", which may explain why many of them were never printed without . Some of his articles, intended to be published in local journals including the New York Daily News: "Patriotism", "Farsightedness", "Reasons Why England Will Lose The War", "An Appeal to Reason", "Brotherhood of Man Principles", and "Praise to Lindbergh",

In the 1930's there was a Nazi funded effort to keep the Unites States of of WW II. The Germans knew that the U.S. was providing war materials to England, thus mobilized a number of American politicians and organizations to keep the U.S. neutral. Most prominent among these individuals was Charles Lindbergh, who thought that the Allies had already lost the war. Another prominent spokesman was Rev. Charles E. Coughlin, a Germany funded frontman who formed the Christian Front and the National Union for Social Justice. He was best know for a series of radio broadcasts, stressing peace and neutrality, that were ordered off the air by the government upon U.S. entry into the War. Other organizations were active in these efforts, including several 'mothers' groups, which organize a "Mother's March on Washington" in 1941. Mostly very good, with some age fade, light chips, fading to some items. Item #2120

Furthermore, what has Germany ever done to us to warrant us holding a chip on our shoulder toward them?"
