Letter from Le Kirk to unknown recipient, 1929. 1 page. Le Kirk writes that he traveled into the Volga region and witnessed sorrow, tragedy, suffering, starvation, and death there. He writes, I came home sick in heart because of the inhumanity of man and the great suffering which, like the irresistible tide had overwhelmed the Russian people. On the back of the paper, there are numbers recorded with two brief notes that are difficult to read. One of these brief notes on the back says that a certain person is an agent of Moscow.
